Default Location of the "Dogie Hotel"

I was out there the other day wondering where this Dogie Hotel was that I have seen in some photos, and if the structure still exists. Here is a link to some of the photos on this site of the attraction:

When I was there I took some pictures of where I suspect it was. This would be the back part of the old Texas shooting gallery in front of Crazy Horse Saloon. It now houses some redemption machines. Here is the link to some of my pictures I took of the building today:

This is a view of the old shooting gallery building approaching from the Old South section walking into the Texas section. The Little Red Schoolhouse is to my left and out of the view of the picture. You might be able to see the Crazy Horse in the background. In this photo the rooftop behind the fencing is the building I am suspecting to be the Doggie Hotel. It would mean that the shooting gallery was built in front of it and covered the front facade. I have 2 more shots of the rear of the building while standing next to the ice cream place.

According to a 1969 map, it was located right across the street from the Crazy Horse Saloon.

Here is a map view, showing it across from the Crazy Horse Saloon. The blue arrow is pointing to front of the building.

The side portion of the same building is the Sheriff's office and jail.
It looks like in later views that they moved the Sheriff's office and Jail to the front of this buidling and removed the Hotel portion.

The buidling behind that fence with the poster on it is operations. It's a large back area. I don't know for sure if that's what it's always been but I suspect so.

Yup, sure am. There's very little about the park I don't know now. Between my OCD about the park, growing up out there, working 3 years out there, having never missed a single year since I was old enough to go, and all the great people on this site (we) can drum up an answer to anything out there. AND if you really wanna know the right answer just ask Krista...

A way to explain what the Dogie Hotel was - Think about one of the buildings at Old City Park, but on a smaller scale.




These pics from the Scott L. Jordan Collection show the hotel sharing space with the tonsorial parlor and not the sheriff's office with its front facing northward, not sideways.
