Hotel Settles



Opened on October 1, 1930, Hotel Settles was built by Will R. and  Lillian Settles, following the discovery of oil on their ranch. Designed  by architect David Castle, the building was constructed as a solid  concrete, 15-story, 150-room hotel with a restaurant and a pharmacy.

At  the time, it was the tallest building between El Paso and Ft. Worth.  The Settles family owned the hotel for two years, but sold it when the  Great Depression gripped the nation and their oil revenues diminished.  The hotel went through several owners in the ensuing years.

Cedar Island


 Cedar Island is located in what could arguably be claimed as America’s most historically significant lake, Lake Champlain, named after the French explorer Samuel Champlain, who became the first European known to have discovered the lake, in 1609, more than 150 years before the American Colonies declared their independence from Great Britain in 1776.
