Historic Rogers Hotel
The Rogers Hotel is located in Historic
and offers visitors three choices in rooms.
This is the original Website Designed and hosted for the Rogers
Hotel when Toni Cimani was the owner. The site had some very
interesting information. Since the Rogers is no longer hotel we
decided to publish the old web site in honor of this Great
Historical old Hotel.
The Hotel has changed a great deal since these
inside photos were taken so one could consider this information and
the photos to be historic in nature.
The hotel is named
after the founder of Waxahachie, Emory W. Rogers who built his log cabin
home in 1847 and donated land for the Ellis County Courthouse in 1850.
In 1856 Mr. Rogers built a two story hotel where his log cabin was, but
it was destroyed in a fire in 1881. A second hotel was built there by
The Waxahachie Real Estate & Bldg. Assn., but it also was destroyed
in a fire in 1911.
