Miss Hattie's Bordello Museum
Miss Hattie’s Bordello Museum, San Angelo, Texas preserved and furnished much like it was during it's heyday in the 1900s. The ladies of Miss Hattie's entertained gentlemen for 50 years, before the bordello was closed in 1946 by the Texas Rangers. Today, thanks to a tradition of preservation, the history is now on display.
Miss Hattie’s business was the hospitality business. She found great pleasure in entertaining her clients.
She believed that if she created a place that was Intimate, Private, and Romatic no one could resist what she had to offer.
Miss Hattie never pretended to be anything other than what she was. A great hostess who surrounded herself with beautiful things and knew the importance of simple yet elegant food with unforgettable service.
"When you visit the bordello-turned museum, only Miss Hattie and her ladies are missing. Lace curtains and velvet drapes hang over the windows. Ornate furnishings take you back to a time when San Angelo boomed and a was a wide-open frontier town. The rooms, named for the women who worked there, feature customized gilded pressed tin ceilings painted gold. The small kitchen looks very basic.
"For 50 years, soldiers, cowboys and travelers were attracted to a San Angelo institution, a brothel they knew simply as Miss Hattie’s"
