   THE EXCELSIOR HOUSE HOTEL
  
211 W. Austin   Jefferson, Texas 75657
 



The ballroom and dining room each feature large French chandeliers and Oriental rugs. Marble mantles and two lovely pianos serve as a backdrop for the beautiful oil paintings and handsome antiques which are used throughout.

Once the location of gala balls and gatherings, the dining room is the perfect setting to enjoy the Excelsior's famous Plantation breakfast or to host receptions, luncheons or dinners. The adjoining courtyard, with its elegant fountain and quiet alcoves, is the frequent site of weddings, ranging from the quiet family services to elaborate ceremonies.

Tours of the Excelsior House are available daily. For a fee of $4, visitors are treated to information about the history of the hotel and shown through the lobby, museum room, ballroom, dining room, courtyard and several bedrooms.  Also available are tours of Jay Gould's private railroad car, "the Atalanta". A railroad tycoon, Jay Gould is reputed to have predicted the "End of Jefferson" Texas.
