The Excelsior House Hotel

Step back in history as you enter the Excelsior House Hotel in Jefferson, Texas and explore the historic hotel lobby with many antiques on display. The historic Excelsior House Hotel was built by riverboat captain William Perry. The Hotel is currently owned and operated by the The Excelsior Foundation and the Jessie Allen Wise Garden Club. Purchased by the club in 1961, volunteers spent thousands of hours restoring the hotel to its former place as a focal point for southern hospitality and social functions.

Gorgeous hall, it is close to the touch of a bygone era, a great job of people who have built the old hotel into shape. And not made it too moderm, impersonal building. All built in the old-time the spirit.

Happy holiday for you and your husband :-)))) Haleja.

@Philnz: Not my BD. I went on a "girl trip" to Jefferson for a few days before Christmas. We didn't stay here but just visited.
