Blue Bonnet Hotel in Sweetwater Texas in 1945

The Blue Bonnet Hotel was a popular 120-room hotel in Sweetwater for many years. H. A. Allen, a Lampasas native who came to Sweetwater in 1921 and opened a car dealership, built the hotel in 1927. At the time, America still reveled in the pre-Depression prosperity and wild speculation of the 1920s.
