The Crescent’s Silver Birthday: A Hunt-Sanders Family Affair

Share News:

I’m working on a piece on the Crescent Hotel, so you may get some tidbits. Today, Mrs. Hunt told me that it took longer to remodel her neighbor’s home than it did to build the Crescent. She also wants it known it was her immediate family, that is, her sons Stephen, David, Bunker and Patrick and daughter Laurie conceived of the idea for the Crescent at it’s location. Which was genius. It was a total family affair! Mrs. Hunt was the one who had the foresight to buy up as much land as possible. She told me she thought about Chicago and the Gold Coast and how population moved northward along the lake. And hearing her say that was just music to a Chicago-girls’ heart.

However, I am now a reborn Texan!

Steve Brown did a great job reporting and writing on the Crescent’s history, subscription req.
