The Hotel Turkey is a historic hotel located in Turkey, Texas, United States that originally opened in 1927.The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on October 24, 1991.
The two-story reddish-brown brick prairie school designed structure was built by H. B. Jordan to take advantage of the extension of the Fort Worth and Denver South Plains Railway to the town of Turkey. On June 12, 1927 the building was partially complete when a tornado leveled it. Construction resumed shortly thereafter, and Hotel Turkey opened for business in November 1927.
The hotel was located just three blocks from the train depot and provided a meeting room to the traveling salesmen of the day to display their wares to the townspeople. The hotel also became a social center for the community as dances, banquets, and meetings of social and civic organizations took place in the dining room and lobby.
The building has had several owners through the years but has operated continuously since it opened. Pat & Tina Carson of Turkey recently bought the historic hotel and have been working to improve the hotel!
The hotel traditionally hosts the musicians who come to Turkey for the annual Bob Wills Day celebration on the last Saturday in April as well as hunters, visitors of Caprock Canyon State Park & people just 'getting away'. George W. Bush, while still governor of Texas, once stayed at the hotel.
The Hotel serves breakfast daily, lunch Tuesday - Sunday & dinner Friday & Saturday night. Live Music every Friday & Saturday night! Don't forget - Friday is Fish Day & Saturday is Steak & Shrimp!!
