I thought this was neat. This was sent to me this morning. Thought I would repost. It is neat to visit the museum. Anyone who has not visited, it would be well worth your while and best of all — it’s free! My favorite time to go is when relatives come in. We make a round to the Kent House and the Museum, as well as other cool things.
“The photograph you are looking at is part of the core history of the Hotel Bentley. It is the Hotel Bentley Corporation Stock book. It has surfaced after spending almost 60 years in a box in the back of a closet, in Houston, Texas. It records the investors in the Hotel Bentley from 1919 to 1936. The names of the local businessmen who thought enough about Alexandria to invest their hard earned money in the Bentley.It paid off for them. All their names are displayed and the amount of stock they purchased and date of purchase are on display along with this book. A piece of Central Louisiana History, at the Louisiana History Museum. Come view the expanded Bentley Hotel exhibit. It’s free.”
