This Day In Laredo: December 5

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt visited Laredo and Nuevo Laredo.  She wrote fondly of her experience here.  The Plaza Hotel served as host for Mrs. Roosevelt.  The building still stands but has taken on a new name and purpose.

UPDATE: July 19, 2021 -- information found online.


  1. Like the history tidbits :)

  2. Some a little more interesting than others. I've got a ways to go to get my "This Day In Laredo" posts completed.
