The Marshall Grand (Hotel Marshall)

-A A +A
1930, Wyatt C. Hedrick. 210 E. Houston St.

This nine-story hotel was the tallest building in Marshall when it opened. It was built for S. B. Perkins, the owner of a Marshall dry goods store, and managed by Pethybridge Hotel Management, which also had hotels in Paris (Texas) and Kaufman. The hotel was adjacent to the Perkins Brothers store and linked to it by a narrow corridor that is still visible on the hotel’s west side. The building consists of a double-story ground floor and mezzanine, six sparingly detailed levels of guest rooms, and a roof garden where the city’s social elite congregated. Above a cornice and balustrade, the top floor is surrounded by an arcade on delicate columns. The hotel closed in the early 1970s, a victim of new motels constructed along the highways around Marshall. The hotel’s public spaces were remodeled in 2008 as an event venue.
