Carmack researched the Olle’s origins and wrote a historical marker application for the hotel’s owners. The Texas Historical Commission awarded the hotel a marker in 2009. The Olle Hotel building dates to shortly before 1900. It began operating as a hotel as early as 1915. Today it offers guests 10 rooms with custom bedding, free wireless Internet, and a continental breakfast.
Here are some additional facts on the Olle from Carmack's book:
"All ten airy guest rooms have private baths. Five rooms are on the first floor, off the main hallway, where (Kathryn) Geesaman spreads a complimentary breakfast buffet.Guests eat in the adjacent small dining room on a half-dozen tables dressed with bouquets of fresh flowers on white linen. . . Geesaman is an affable hostess and enjoys sharing tips about where to eat and what to see and do in the area."
