Since the Baker Hotel opened in 1929, its fortunes have been intertwined with the city of Mineral Wells.
Following Saturday's vote, Mineral Wells officials hope both the town and the hotel are on their way to a rebirth.
In what developers are calling the last piece for the dilapidated hotel’s much-needed makeover, nearly 96 percent of the city's voters approved reallocating an eighth of a cent of the city's sales tax to the $56 million project.
