The Nebraska Inn - Francitas, Tex.


The Nebraska Inn served 300 meals last Sunday and had enough supplies left over to have cared for 75 or 100 more people. If here is any hotel in the world in a town two months old that could meet an emergency like this hotel, The Bee would like to hear about it. --Francitas Bee, February 16, 1911
