File- This undated file photo shows The Naylor Hotel, at Concho Avenue and Chadbourne Street, in San Angelo, Texas, which became the Town House in the mid-1950s. It began as a glorious two-story hotel in 1881, owned by the son of Carl Nimitz, who owned the Nimitz Hotel in Fredericksburg. The hotel was obliterated by fire in 1883 in a murder cover-up, according to Standard-Times archives. The cook killed his kitchen helper and set a fire to cover up the deed. That was the first tragedy in a long line at the location.  (The San Angelo Standard-Times via AP, File)
