Viggo Kohler had the eponymous Hotel Viggo bulit in 1915 when Hebrronville, an outpost in the brush country of South Texas, had only a few hundred people. At the time, the Mexican Revolution was raging not far to the south, and the hotel was used a fortress against Pancho Villa, who had an occasional yearning to make shoot-em-up raids north of the Rio Grande. I don't really know anything else about this place, when it closed, that sort of thing. Based on some clues I found around the hotel, it appears that this served as the county emergency medical services headquarters and a senior nutrition center for a while before finally shutting down for good, perhaps not all that long ago. The doors were locked, but the windows were completely broken out. Seeing this as an inviation to enter, I spent a good while photographing this old hotel, that must have once been a pretty grand establishment for a town that to this day has fewer than 5,000 people. I can only assume the gurney is a remnant of the days when the local EMS was based here. Across the street we find the Jim Hogg County Courthouse, serving what I think is the best-named county in America.
