The Palace dates back to 1882 . . .

The Meredith and Ailman bank building was built in
a superior manner. The iron front, painted dark
green presented a remarkably fine appearance and
the facade looked very imposing, according to the
New Southwest.

The Silver City Enterprise announced the opening
of the Palace Hotel on March 1, 1900. "The new
owner, Max Shutz, spared no pains or expense to
make the new hotel an up-to-date house in every
respect . . . every modern hotel convenience such
as closets, bath rooms, electric lights, the building
renders the conveniences unexcelled by any hotel
of this city."

Owners Cal and Nancy Thompson, with the help of
the Main Street Project and the New Mexico
Historical Preservation Office, have restored the
Palace to its former elegance, reopening it in July,
