- Zella Hotel in Zella, McMullen County, Texas (1 KB)
The Zella Hotel located in Zella, McMullen Co., Texas. Zella was a rural community and land development project six miles north of Fowlerton on State Highway 97 in northwestern McMullen County. It was named for Zella BLAND, the daughter of Howard BLAND, one of the town's developers.
The Zella Townsite Company developed the site on the San Antonio, Uvalde and Gulf Railroad, known as The "Sausage Line" in 1913. The company drilled an artesian well and built a number of buildings, including a railroad depot, a two-room schoolhouse, one residence and the store-post office and the Zella Hotel. The hotel was built by R. L. Coyle under contract for $4,500.00. This large 2-story frame building was located in the middle of the townsite, a short distnace west of the railroad. It boasted a large lobby, expansive dining room, kitchen and pantry, 2 bedrooms, hall & one bath downstairs and 8 bedrooms, 1 bath and long hallway upstairs. A big gallery stretched across the east and south side downstairs with an open deck over it upstairs. Zella was granted a post office in 1914, and a few town lots and some of the surrounding farmland were sold. Mr. E. C. Williams built a store-post office in late 1914. He was the first and only Postmaster for a short period until about 1916 when the Zella Post Office was officially closed. The school closed soon after it opened. About 150 yards directly in front of and east of the Zella Hotel, the railroad built its depot, which was in operation for many years before it was torn down about 1945. However, the stock shipping pens and weighing scales remain today about 300 yards northeast of the Hotel. Up until about the time that The "Sausage Line" was taken up in 1969, Zella enjoyed the distinction of being the only railroad shipping point in McMullen County. Until 1940, when roads were improved, great numbers of cattle were shipped out to markets by rail. Cattle ranches as far away as 30 miles to th

This is the entrance to Mount Calvary Cemetery. Several of my relatives are buried here. There is a historical marker that reads:
Mount Calvary Cemetery
Pioneer settlers used this site for
burials as early as the 1840s. The
oldest known grave is that of
Amanda L. Houx (1829 - 1847). In
1868 William Huffhines donated a
two-acre tract, which included the
early graves, to Mount Calvary
Baptist Church. A frame church
building stood here until 1885, when
the congregation moved to
Richardson and later became the
First Baptist Church. More land was
added to the burial ground by C. C.
Huffhines in 1896 and C. B. Chick
in 1925 and 1935. A cemetery
association, formed in 1924, cares
for the almost 800 graves here.
