Inscription. First hotel owned by Conrad Hilton, who proceeded to become “The World’s Foremost Innkeeper”.
     Built in 1916 by H.L. Mobley, a northerner, who sold out (1919) during Cisco’s great oil boom to Hilton, then a 32-year-old ex-legislator and banker from New Mexico. On night of purchase Hilton “dreamed of Texas wearing a chain of Hilton hotels”. In time reality outran that dream.
     Hotel was in use many years after sale by Hilton in 1925.
