Another Texas-based, business success story!

On this day in 1947 (May 29), Hilton Hotels was incorporated.  In 1919, Conrad Nicholson Hilton purchased his first hotel - the Mobley, at Cisco, Texas. This was the beginning of a hotel empire built in three stages: first, by leasing and renovating old hotels; next, by building new hotels on leased land, primarily in Texas; and, third, by buying existing hotels at low prices. Hilton opened a new Texas hotel every year between 1925 and 1930 and by the onset of the Great Depression owned a total of eight.

In 1938 he acquired the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco, his first hotel outside of Texas. Hilton later established his corporate headquarters at Beverly Hills, California, and began to expand abroad, starting in Mexico. In all, Conrad Hilton eventually owned 188 hotels in thirty-eight United States cities, including the Shamrock Hotel in Houston, the Mayflower in Washington, the Palmer House in Chicago, and the Plaza and Waldorf-Astoria in New York, and fifty-four hotels abroad.

And yes... the Organo Gold movement got its start in Texas too - specifically Houston, Texas.
