The St. James Hotel is the place where Aaron Burr Jr. died on September 14, 1836. Aaron Burr was the vice president of the United States under President Thomas Jefferson's first term. The St. James Hotel was created shortly after the Revolutionary War, around 1787. It was demolished in 1945 and has been replaced by an apartment complex. There is a plaque on the building marking it as the site of the St. James Hotel and the death place of Aaron Burr.
