History uncovered at the Rieger Hotel

A sign for the historic Rieger Hotel was uncovered Monday morning as work is being done to renovate the building for senior living. A worker at the site said it looked like someone had tried to preserve the sign's integrity while covering it up years ago.

Columbus-based housing developer Buckeye Community Hope Foundation recently secured enough tax credits, valued at $5.4 million, to transform the old hotel into a 37-unit apartment building designed for seniors with retail and restaurants on the ground floor.
