LIVE tonight on tsuNomination your hosts Danielle Paccione and Bill Bachman bring you on a haunted tour of the Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, TX!
The grand Baker Hotel is located on the corner of a one-way westbound street, East Hubbard Street, and NE 1st Street. You can't miss The Baker Hotel building, as it towers above everything else in all its glory. Mineral Wells is just west of Fort Worth.
This towering, classic, stone brick building, decorated with lovely carvings, is 14 stories high, and was built to last in 1929, by visionary hotel developer, T.B. Baker. Baker came up with the idea of building a massive hotel near a mineral spring, at the cost of $1,250,000.00, which was quite a chunk of change for the time. Known as the Grand Old Lady, her building design was influenced by the Art Deco style, and built by the gifted structural engineer Wyatt Hendrick, modeled after Hendrick's other resort hotel, the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs, Arkansas. There were three different staircases: One for the well-to-do guests, one for their servants and yet another staircase for those who didn't want to be seen.
Just because The Baker Hotel is closed to the living, doesn't mean it is empty of activity. It is reported that there are at least 49 spirits who make The Baker Hotel their home. The Baker Hotel was known to be haunted, long before it closed its doors.
