Caprock Hotel, Claude Texas

Caprock Hotel, Claude Texas —

On a drive home from New Mexico we stopped in Claude to see if we could find any old hotels and came across this old gem. Unfortunately, I can find very little about this hotel. There is no entry for the Caprock Hotel in the Hotel Red Books, and so far nothing in the old Texas Hotel Review publications. The Hotel Monthly for September 1931 notes that H.J. Smith is the proprietor of the hotel. The Sanborn Insurance maps show the hotel was not open in 1921. However, sometime between 1921 and 1934 the hotel opened according to a later Sanborn Insurance map.
