HISTORY

The history of  La Posada Hotel is inseparable from the History of Laredo. The hotel, which has long been the cultural and social center of social life in the city, sits on the banks of the Rio Grande with spectacular views of Mexico.

The historical, luxury boutique hotel is built around four historical buildings The old Casa Consistorial, the municipal building that also housed a jail, used to stand where La Posada is now. 

In 1886 it was converted into the old Laredo High School until 1916 when it was torn down and a new school erected. It is there that Laredo’s youth attended classes until 1937 when Martin High School was opened

 The old Laredo High School today is the main entrance to the hotel, and houses the Front Desk and Lobby, the Zaragoza Grill, meeting rooms, the Phillip V Ballroom, The Tesoro Club and the hotel’s administrative offices. Our ballrooms are located in what was once a 19th-century convent. The Capitol of the Republic of the Rio Grande dates back to the 1830’s and now houses a museum on the hotel grounds. The famous Tack Room Steak House is located in the elegant Bruni Home, which also dates from the 1800’s.La Posada Hotel is grateful to the Herring Family and the Fasken Family for sharing their wonderful collection of historic photos. Here are a few of the photos:

The old town of Laredo was founded by Don Tomas Sanchez on May 15, 1755, and is now occupied by La Posada. The Plaza across the street is of historical interest, since it is the original site of the Villa de San Agustin de Laredo, later shortened to "San Agustin Plaza," then to "Laredo." Theres is an old bell in the tower of The San Agustin Church that dates back to 1700's.

In 1790 the Plaza was attacked by hostile Lipan Indians, and during a brief period of occupation, was the scene of an indian war dance. During this period of Laredo's history, the town was populated by 700 citizens, 100 indians and a troop of Spanish Soldiers.
