#20 - Wallis Hotel (Walking Tour)
- One Liberty Park Plaza | Grapevine, TX 76051
This 1991 building is a replica of the original 1891 Wallis Hotel that was located near the depot at Hudgins and Main Streets. The original hotel served traveling salesmen called “drummers” who “drummed up” or sought business in town. To recreate this new building, architects used historic photographs to generate exterior plans for the modern building that served as the office of the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau until 2012.
