One of the many beautiful 1940s art deco pieces, a two story glass block window, added to the building when it was renovated in 1948, sheds light on Innkeeper Keith Hackland. We had a tough time finding matching glass blocks to repair these windows, but were successful at a specialty glass block business in San Antonio – Photo Virginia Gause
