The Old Valley Inn

The Old Valley Inn

The Old Valley Inn once stood on this location on Alameda and Harris in Lower Valley,El Paso. The Old Valley Inn dates back to the 1850s, it was one of the oldest buildings in El Paso. The Old Valley Inn was used as a inn to accommodate passengers on the Santa Fe stagecoach route. Eventually, it was bought by Lucy Brooks and her first husband, Alexander Peterman. They bought it because they found new teachers coming to Ysleta had no place to stay. The inn became a center of social life in Ysleta. Dances were held there and it was a place where the wondering motorist could stop for Sunday dinners. It was sold in 1972 to Edward Powell, who demolished it because he wanted to expand his P & N Big 8 Market. It is now used as a parking lot for Food King.
