1. Capitol Hotel, Marshall.
The Capitol Hotel stood from 1857 to 1971 at the corner of Houston and Bolivar Streets in Marshall. It was predated by the Adkins House and was succeeded by the Hotel Marshall, which still stands. It was financed by George Adkins and built by two slaves, Dick Land and Green Hill. These expert masons made the bricks that went into the 12-inch walls of the five-story structure.

2. The Hotel Marshall Undergoes Renovation.
The Hotel Marshall that is standing today is not the original Hotel Marshall. The original was located directly next door. At one point there were three buildings on that block. The Capital Hotel (for which a historical marker stands), the smaller, original Hotel Marshall, then the Hotel Marshall now being restored.
