Remarks: El Paso Herald May 1, 1908. The building will be on Main Street, will be four stories height according to the blue prints and will be constructed of the first quality yellow brick. The first floor will be taken up by a large court, a rotunda and business rooms around the outside. The remaining of the building will be used for a hotel. The building first floor was occupied by the First State Bank (short time) Pullman Cafe, the Myers Hardware Company and Livingston Dollar Store

In 1920s, R.B. Herndon and his wife changed the upstairs apartments and offices into a hotel. In November 1929 a fire on the first floor  forced on the second floor residences to escape the building.
