Take a walk through this amazing building. Feel the history and talent that is evident in every part of the Rogers Hotel.
The hotel is named after the founder of Waxahachie, Emory W. Rogers. He built his log
cabin home on the site in 1847, and after several years, built a two-story hotel in 1856. Unfortunately, it was destroyed by a fire in 1881. The Waxahachie Real Estate & Building Assocation built a second hotel on the site which also burned to the ground in 1911. The Rogers
Hotel that stands presently was designed by Architect C.D. Hill in 1912, and opened in early
1913. The project cost approximately $100,000. The hotel has twin four story towers constructed of reinforced concrete, faced with dark molted brick, trimmed with bedford stone
and claimed to be “absolutely fire proof.” The West tower roof was designed with a roof
garden restaurant with an incredible view of the city. The East tower roof was designed for
sleeping tents for open air enthusiasts, while the basement boasted a billiard room, barber
shop, and swimming pool. The hotel has gone through several owners and periods of
vacancy throughout it’s lifetime.
