Summary: The Webb Historical Society donated the following
materials pertaining to early Fort Worth. These include a cash book
and hotel register for the Mary Merrill Hotel, a day book for the dry
goods store McNary and Boothe, and a manuscript about growing up in
early Fort Worth by Charles Fred Laue. Based on these records, the
Mary Merrill Hotel of Fort Worth appears to have had four floors as
the room numbers have 200, 300, and 400 series, yet no listing for the
hotel could be found in the 1920 Fort Worth City
