History in a Pecan Shell

In the mid 1920s, the Syndicate Hotel was built as lodging for prospective land buyers. Originally located some 10 miles east of Hub, it failed with the arrival of the Great Depression and was bought and moved to Hub, where it became the community’s most impressive structure. Little has been recorded of Hub’s history, but the town was substantial enough to once support a grain elevator and not one but two cotton gins. Hub still appears on the Parmer County maps as a crossroads community but does not show a cemetery.
Texas Escapes, in its purpose to preserve historic, endangered and vanishing Texas, asks that anyone wishing to share their local history, stories, and vintage/historic photos of their town, please contact us.
