The History Of Hilton Hotels Began In The Town Of Cisco, Texas

Posted in Texas History June 23, 2023 by Katie Lawrence

I’m proud to be a Texan for so many reasons; not the least of which is how innovative our people are. From Dr Pepper to Dell computers, many inventions from Texas have changed the world – including the Hilton hotel brand. Founded in 1919 by Conrad Hilton, the international hospitality corporation started from the humblest of beginnings in the small town of Cisco, Texas, which is located about two hours west of Dallas and has a population of roughly 4,000. The brand really paved the way for the hotel industry to flourish, and the history of Hilton Hotels is fascinating and inspiring.
