The Ensley Hotel was a two-story wood framed hotel constructed on the corner of 19th Street and Avenue E in Ensley in 1887. Originally the guest rooms primarily accommodated potential investors in Colonel Enoch Ensley's real-estate venture. The lobby housed the town's post office as well as billiard tables and a lounge area.
The property was auctioned off to James C. Warner in 1898. In the early 1910s he tore down the vacant building, then considered an eyesore, and built a row of commercial fronts. The site was later sold to Erskine Ramsay and Carr McCormack for their landmark Ramsay-McCormack building.
