Creator: unknown
Description: Photo of a drawing of the Hunter House Hotel. David Clark Hunter bought a small house on Lot 8 block 9, original townsite map, in August 1848. By 1850, the hotel was a three storied building with an attic and an ell. According to Mary Kate Hunter, the old hotel burned and the prize register perished in the fire. It was located on the northeast corner of the intersection of Perry Street and the Rusk Road. It also acted as a stage coach stop during the mid 1800's. Among the famous guests were: Sam Houston, Roger Q. Mills, Judge Sexton, General Wigfall, Colonel Ochiltree and many others. The Delespine Hotel, which was located on the opposite corner across Perry street from the Hunter House, was also popular stopping place, and it is said that the old steps of which made a favorite place for Sam Houston to sit and whittle and talk to his constituents. Both buildings have been gone now for many years.
