[The Damron Hotel Fire, 21 of 21: An Early Stage, Looking East, Smoke Billowing]

Description:

Here is a view of the Damron Hotel (formerly located at 109 W. Hubbard Street)during the early stages of the fire (on December 22, 1975) that completely destroyed it.
Built as the Colonial Hotel in 1906 by J. T. Holt for his second wife, and traded to Agnew and Bessie Damron for a ranch about 1917, the name was changed to reflect the new ownership.
It was a popular hotel during the heyday of Mineral Wells--through the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression and World War II.
