This postcard reflects how the Bay Texas Hotel appeared not long after its 1927 opening.

    The Texas Historical Commission (THC) has recognized a local landmark as an important part of Texas history by granting an Official Texas Historical Marker. 
   The Bay Tex Hotel on Sixth Street is the latest historical asset to be recognized by the Texas Historical Commission in Matagorda County. 
   “The Official Texas Historical Marker program helps bring attention to community treasures and the importance of their preservation,” said Mark Wolfe, executive director of the THC. 
   “Awareness and education are among the best ways to guarantee the preservation of our state’s history.  
   “This designation is a tool that will increase public awareness of important cultural resources,” Wolfe said. 
   A subject qualifies for a marker if two basic criteria are met: historical significance and age.
