Fredonia Hotel Reaches 50 Years

A milestone for a Nacogdoches hotel.

The Fredonia Hotel and Convention Center opened its doors 50 years ago. A reception was held Friday to honor that anniversary. Hotel board members reflected on the hotel's history and its standing within the community.

Florence Patton, a boardmember of the Fredonia Board of Directors said, "it's been something that centers the town. All of our major activities are headquartered here, we're one block from our historic downtown brick street, Main Street. And it's just an important part of this community."

There will be an open house including live music, barbecue, and tours of the hotel starting at 11:00 Saturday morning.
