Miss Hattie’s Bordello Museum in San Angelo is a Sight to See
If it wasn't for the Texas Rangers, San Angelo might still have a thriving business in the Downtown area.
In downtown San Angelo is a museum that celebrates the ladies...of the evening. Miss Hattie's Bordello.
The building now has a jewelry shop in it, but the upper floors are what people come to see.
The tin roof in the jewelry store still has bullet holes in the ceiling from when it was a saloon back in 1902. The upper floors then were a house of fun. Cowboys, soldiers, and young men all came on over to experience the 'saloon'. That is until the Texas Rangers out of Houston shut it down in 1952. Guess they didn't get a discount.
In the 70's they reopened the place as a museum with a lot of the original furniture. But not the mattresses (thank goodness).
