Take a step back in time. Houston's historic Rice Hotel, which opened to the public in 1913, is considered one of the finest hotels Houston has built in the last century. Securely nestled in the heart of downtown, the hotel was once a social mecca for the rich, famous and powerful.

Here is a bit about the history of the Rice Hotel. It was built on the original site of the first Capitol of the Republic of Texas, and home of the first Texas Congress from 1837 to 1839. The original Capitol building was torn down in 1881 by a Colonel Groesbeck, to make way for the new Capitol Hotel on Texas Street.

William Marsh Rice, the legendary founder of Houston's Rice University, purchased the building in 1883 and added a five-story annex. He then named it the Rice Hotel. In 1911, Rice University sold the hotel to Jesse Jones, an early publisher of The Houston Chronicle newspaper and a noted politician and entrepreneur. Jones wasted no time in razing the building and erecting a 17-story structure on the site. The new hotel opened on May 17, 1913 at a cost of over $2 million. Quite a lot in 1913 dollars!

As often happens, though, many years of history and tradition had to come to an end. With the Rice Hotel, the end came in 1975 when a decision was made to shut the hotel down. As many held their breath in hope and anticipation, the hotel reopened for a short time in 1976. However, it wasn't meant to be, and the Rice Hotel was permanently closed by court order and sold at foreclosure in 1977.

After a few years of laying dormant, the old hotel was renovated and reopened as the Post Rice Lofts, a luxury apartment complex. Historically the same in many respects, one of the finest hotels Houston ever had enjoys new life serving a modern generation.

These fluffy quirky creatures that dart around up and down trees are definitely fun to watch. It is a different story when they make their way in ones attic and take up residence in the roof or attic. All of a sudden they cause problems and worry and they are no longer so lovable. The solution should never be hurting these animals. There are effective humane solutions controllers often exterminate but removing them and releasing them in the wild is a more humane solution when squirrel removal from attic should be considered.

People become aware of these uninvited guests by the scratching and scrabbling noises. Squirrels are mostly active during daylight hours and seldom heard at night. Most other co-dwellers such as mice and bats are more active at night. Regardless though, if you have a family of squirrels living in your space then chances are that they will make a lot more noise.

Traps, if the correct type, work effectively. Mostly when squirrels take up residence it is a mother with her litter. By catching the mother one leaves the litter at risk and they will surely die and cause bad odours. Live trapping using traps over their entry hole is by far the most humane option. Most favoured baits when one is trying to do animal removal/squirrels from attic include peanuts, peanut butter or bits of fruit.
