Plan for the Adaptive Reuse of the Long Hotel in Stephenville, Texas

The historic Long Hotel in Stephenville, Texas, is no stranger to reinvention. The art-deco styled building was a hotel, then a restaurant and apartments, a fraternity house and, for the last 25 years, nothing at all. Bohmfalk meshed his two concentrations—historic preservation and real estate development—to analyze the feasibility of adaptive reuse for the property consistent with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. “In my admissions essay for the program, I wrote that I was inspired by a small adaptive reuse project in Texas called the Ant Street Inn,” he said. “It seemed poetic for my final project to come full circle.”
