Collection Historical Note

On October 21, 1848 the Nacogdoches Times announced the opening of Planter's Hotel at the northwest corner of North and Main Streets. The hotel, a large two-storied frame structure owned by John J. Simpson, was the second hotel in existence at that time in Nacogdoches. Simpson continued as proprietor until December 1852, at which time he made arrangements to lease the hotel to E. S. Huston. But, failing to put the hotel in repair in time, Simpson was fined $215 and the deal fell through. Simpson made a new agreement with J. C. Harrison not long afterward. Harrison renamed the hotel The Monteluma House, and advertised the renovation in the Apr. 5, 1853 Nacogdoches Chronicle. On the following November 22, the Nacogdoches Chronicle noted that the hotel was then under the management of Sarah N. Hubert and Sons. When John J. Simpson died on June 22, the Planter's Hotel passed into the hands of his children. The property remained in the family until 1882, when it was sold to J. C. Harris et. al. The hotel was eventually destroyed by fire
