Moving Forward.


This building holds a great amount of history. Being the first ever Hilton Hotel, there are five divisions to the museum. Admission to the museum is free and we encourage people passing through town to stop and take a peek. There are also spaces on the grounds available for rent for special events and occasions.


In 1919 Conrad Hilton came to Cisco in hopes of purchasing a bank. However, when the owner of the bank increased the price, he declined the offer. That evening Hilton came down to the Mobley Hotel to spend the night. He noticed the lobby was completely packed and that the hotel was switching occupants in the rooms every eight hours, reason being the oil boom that was taking place in the area. The owner of the Mobley, Henry Langford Mobley, coincidentally was ready to get out of the hotel business. He and Conrad came to an agreement, so Conrad contacted home. Getting several investors on board, including his mother, Conrad was able to purchase the Mobley Hotel. The world's first ever Hilton.


Within the original hotel, you can find a newly renovated "The Steve Hilton Room". A 32x50' ballroom ideal for weddings, receptions, reunion, parties, and business meetings. With the rental comes the use of 150 chairs and a multitude of round and rectangular tables. In addition to the room is a permanent stage on the west end, equipped with multiple tiers of curtains and a 10x10' electric drop-down projection screen perfect for presentations. Rental includes access to the kitchen and food prep area. This area rents for $200 for a minimum of four hours. For each additional hour there will be a $50 charge. No charge for decoration and clean up time. If you are interested in renting this space please contact the Cisco Chamber of Commerce.
