Highland Park Hotel

Recommended Posts

I found this postcard on worthpoint.

Does anyone know about this? I searched and couldn't find anything. I can only assume this hotel was located within the Highland Park Amusement Park that was below the current-day Interstate-45?

Awesome building!!  Very cool.


I also found an advertisement in the newspaper The Houston Post. dated June 18, 1906.

Nice pic...any idea what that white frame is for, on the left side of the hotel? It's huge. The two guys in the background are so small standing by it. Surely that's not a roller coaster frame. Mysterious. Here's a map showing where the hotel was located..close to Houston Ave. at Highland (later Parkview). The word under Highland Park says "hotel".

BTW - the house on the northeast corner (Hou.av. x Parkview) dates to 1902. It's a beauty.
