Blog from a Guest

We really appreciate when our guests share the word about their Harvey House experience.  Shared below is from Neil Kurtzman, M.D., who stayed with us a few days ago.  This is from his own blog, which we highly recommend because of his amazing humor writing skills.  Check this one out and try not to laugh out loud several times.






Here is his review and photos of the Harvey House, excluding some of the basic history posted previously on this website:

With just one half-time employee, the Slaton Harvey House has been restored and operates through a labor of love by dozens of dedicated area volunteers.  One of them is Tony Privett, shown below.  He is a Slaton native whose father was a Santa Fe conductor.

The The Harvey House of Slaton hasn’t received as much notice as it should. It beautifully displays a bygone piece of Americana that deserves recognition and attention. Lubbock is a city with a population of 300,000. Because of its universities and medical centers it receives many visitors. A trip to the Harvey House would add a lot to their stay in the Hub City. Locals should also visit the establishment and use its facilities. Below are a few photos I took during my recent recent to the House.
