Hutchinson KS The Bisonte Santa Fe Hotel 1929
Here is the Bisonte Hotel which was built in the Elizabethan style during the peak train era. Named after the Bison of old Bisonte is Spanish for bison, when I visited this town of salt fame, I learned by driving around the downtown by the tracks, it must have been torn down. Written to Miss Margaret Glessner, Grey Gables, Oberlin College, Oberlin OH, with a 1 cent stamp March 1929 "An extra stop, next Newton, just like summer. Dad" Post marked Newton Kans March 18 1929.
