History of Moore

Iowa Hotel

This is a shot of the Iowa Hotel, built by Henry Applegate in the late 1800's.  The exact time of this photo is not known, but based on the cement sidewalks in front, the size of the tree in front and brick buildings on either side, it's safe to say it was built after the fire of 1910 that burned much of downtown Moore (but somehow spared the hotel).
