Seven Texas businessmen have decided to renovate the boarded up, 90 year old Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells. The Baker Hotel And Spa was a hot spot back in the day for the healing power of the springs located under the hotel. Celebrities such as Clarke Gable, Judy Garland and Helen Keller use to visit. Also gangsters Bonnie and Clyde where know to visit the hotel.
Many people have stated the hotel has been haunted as early as the 1930's. The Baker hotel has also been named by some as the most haunted hotel in Texas. Renovating the hotel could stir up some angry spirits! Either way, the renovation is happening and expected to be open for business in 3 years.
A press release quoted, "The redevelopment of the property will allow for 157 guest rooms, a 14th floor ballroom and 22,000 square feet of meeting and event space, along with a restaurant, lounge, coffee shop and spa."
