Inscription. In 1910 Canadian was a thriving railroad and marketing center with a Baptist Academy. English-born Robert Moody (1838-1915), a rancher, banker and trustee of the academy, decided to build a hotel that would reflect the town's prosperity. On the site of the former McIntosh Hotel, he began construction of this brick veneered building. The three-story facility opened in late 1910 with 40 guest rooms and a beautiful oak stairway. The Moody Hotel became a local landmark and a popular stop for visitors until changing travel customs caused it to close.
 
Erected 1978 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 3450.)
