Boise City's Crystal Hotel, Local Landmark, Burns

Oct 22, 2012

BOISE CITY, Okla. (AP) — A landmark hotel in Boise City has burned.

The Crystal Hotel was a fixture on Main Street since 1926 until it went up in flames on Sunday.

The hotel had been closed for several years until a restaurant opened on the premises, though that business moved several months ago.

The Oklahoman reports firefighters were called to the scene Sunday afternoon and were able to keep the blaze from spreading to other buildings.

The hotel used to house railroad crews and was a stop for the Continental Bus Company.
