A very interesting thing about the Hotel is the history of President’s House Coffee. The Shop doesn’t just sell coffee but also a large bite of History. The Coffee house is situated at the place that was earlier inhabited by the President of the Republic of Texas.
You must be wondering when did the Republic of Texas happen? Yes, in the nineteenth century Texas was the hotbed of contention between the United States and Mexico. In fact they even went to a war over the state.
The war began when the US annexed Texas, which was earlier claimed by Mexico. Before the invasion by the US, Texas had declared freedom from Mexico. Mexico claimed them as rebels, however Texas formed its own Republic and President. They even ruled for 10 years, 1836 to 1846.
During that period of 10 years, the President’s House was located at a place where you can have coffee now. So what are you waiting for? Grab a cup of coffee and a slice of Texan history.
