The Governor Cabell Hotel (now the Morris Building) at 9th Street and 4th Avenue. "In the interior, the upper portion of the arched windows opened upon the mezzanine above the lobby," said Richard McCoy of Huntington. "The mezzanine was rented by the Engineers Club of Huntington and was open to members and their guests. It was open and spacious, clean and comfortable. There were overstuffed chairs to sit in, newspapers to read, one might smoke a cigar there or enjoy a mixed drink from the bar. A bartender was on-hand. (Members had their bottle in a locker, behind the bar.) You could play cards or shoot pool at the club's pool table, conduct a business associate, order a meal served to the mezzanine from the Hotel Restaurant or have your friends in for a luncheon catered by the Hotel Restaurant. Club meetings were held there." Date is unknown.
