Gallery: 50 YearsLa Posada Hotel | 50 Years of Beautiful History
The History of La Posada Hotel is inseparable from the History of Laredo. The hotel, which has long been the cultural and social center of social life in the city, sits on the banks of the Rio Grande with spectacular views of Mexico. The historical luxury boutique hotel is built around four historical buildings.
The old Casa Consistorial, the municipal building that also housed a jail, used to stand where La Posada is now. In 1886 it was converted into the old Laredo High School until 1916 when it was torn down and a new school erected. It is there that Laredo’s youth attended classes until 1937 when Martin High School was opened.
The hotel is built around four historic buildings. Our ballrooms are located in what was once a 19th-century convent. The Capitol of the Republic of the Rio Grande dates back to the 1830’s and now houses a museum on the hotel grounds. The famous Tack Room Steak House is located in the elegant Bruni Home, which also dates from the 1800’s.
La Posada Hotel is grateful to the Herring Family and the Fasken Family for sharing their wonderful collection of historic photos, of which we share with you today.
