Holland Hotel

Holland Hotel

Brewster County, Texas
30 21.434' N 103 39.767' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of Holland Avenue and 6th Street. Go 1/2 block west on Holland Avenue. The hotel is on the right (north) side of the road.

Historical Marker: This Spanish Colonial Revival hotel was built in 1912 for John R. Holland (d.1922), a successful area cattleman. Completed during the mercury mining boom days of Alpine, it served as the civic, social, and business center for the growing city. After Holland's death, the business was managed by his son Clay, who made several additions to the structure. Despite changes in ownership, the Holland Hotel remained in operation until 1969.
