He was a gentleman and a scholar. His passing is a loss for all of us. :cry: :cry:

Well done, but the switch between frames is too fast for my older eyes.  :eek:

In Topic: Mineral Wells- Baker hotel on track for restoration

25 September 2014 - 12:22 PM

Would love it if it happens, but it's one of those "I'll believe it when I see it" things, considering how many other Baker restoration projects never got off the ground, though.

 

The descriptions of their planned interior decor - "Palo Pinto Chic" - sound kinda terrible, though.  Like they're going to gussy up the interiors with lots of cheesy Texas star decorations and cow hides.  Just restore it to the original appearance and let it shine.  I hope my fear about that is proven wrong.

 

Count me in the skeptical group.  Even if this edifice were completely restored, what would compel visitors to go to and stay in Mineral Wells when the FW-D area already has more than ample attractions with more being added yearly?
