The Baker Hotel Preliminary Restoration Walk Through

Hailing from Mineral Wells, I jumped at the gracious invite to tag along with the current restoration team to tour the Baker Hotel - not wanting to waste a moment I grabbed my little video camera to capture this amazing and architecturally significant building that I haven't been inside in over 20 years...

Underlit and obviously hand-held, the footage actually turned out better than I had expected (it was very very dark); therefore, I decided to quickly edit an "overview" of what we saw on the tour (using a consumer-grade editing program, sorry no bells and whistles!). If things progress accordingly with the historical restoration I plan on bringing my complete video crew and production team to the table if the Baker Hotel developers will have us...

I owe Mike and Mark of HHCC Plumbing Construction a huge thank you, as well as all the participants there that day. Here's to bringing the ol' gal back!

Onward and upward,

  1. Kevin, I greatly look forward to following your observations on restoring the Baker. As another Central Texas native, I have frequently lamented the neglect of the many fine old buildings that helped make our small towns unique.

    Nice project!
