Hutchins House Hotel On Franklin St. & Travis St.


Recommended Posts

I was looking around for historic Houston things and came across some cool history.

The Hutchins House Hotel from the late 1800s.  I wonder if we can find this on any Sanborn maps?

The Hutchins House – Houston, Texas
$50,000 has been expended in remodeling and refurnishing this hotel. It is now first-class in every particular; fifty private bath rooms; electric elevator; new light plant; general equipment unsurpassed. American plan, $2.00 to $3.5 per day. European plan, $1.00 to $2.00 per day.

Finest Turkish bath rooms in the south.

W.T. & J.T. Boyle, Proprietors.

I was looking for further information and found an event ticket for the Rail Road Ball that was held on January 23, 1872.
