HOME to multiple murderer, William Faust! The Magnolia Hotel was built in the early 1840's by Texas Ranger, James Campbell who was also the Co-Founder of Seguin, Texas. After being murdered and scalped by raiding Comanches, his cabin was sold to Joseph F. Johnson who turned it into a stagecoach station and built Seguin's FIRST hotel in the back section. Johnson then sold the hotel in 1846 to Michael Erskine and Jeremiah S. Calvert (father-in-law to the famous Capt. John "Jack" Coffee HAYS). Hays married Calvert's daughter, Susan Calvert inside the Magnolia Hotel. Dr. William S. Reid was the next proprietor in the 1850's. The hotel was a popular stopover for passengers traveling through Seguin on the stage. Its cellar was cut out of solid rock and served as a refuge during Indian scares by the Chief Tarantula. During 1874 it was the home to one of Texas most hideous murderer who was killed right after he was found guilty! In the 1930's a section of the hotel became part of an apartment house. It is now owned by author, Erin O Wallace and her husband, Jim Ghedi.
