Inscription. This building was constructed in 1908 as a saloon with "Guest" rooms on the top floors. It belonged to Winfield Scott, one of Fort Worth's most prominent citizens who amassed a small fortune in the cattle business. A popular lodging place for cattlemen marketing their herds at the Fort Worth Stockyards, this building is the best example remaining in Fort Worth of a small "Cattle-Era" Hotel.
