Summary: Photograph of the Brandt Hotel (later Alma Hotel) located at 402 Missouri Street, Alma, Kansas. The photo shows the sign "Brandt Hotel" on front, shade trees along sides, and dirt streets. The hotel was opened by Joseph Brandt on December 12, 1887. He had previously operated the Western Star Hotel, a block to the south. By 1890, Brandt had turned the hotel over to M.G. Whellan, and by 1901, it sold to Theresa Horne, who had previously operated a hotel in the old Palenske Hall building. After Brandt's departure, it was known as the Alma Hotel. This view is about 1910. The building has been placed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
