Barneey’s Motel and Restaurant (it’s just Barney’s now) has had a long history. Barney Malcolm originally opened it in 1945 and since that time it has experienced a number of transformations.
In 1982 it burned down says Bee Rick Reynolds. “It was while someone was leasing it from my grandmother (Sadie Hughes)…looking to buy if I remember…it had only been few months after my dad died. I was living in San Antonio, Texas. I know it was ruled arson, [but they] never caught the people as far as I know.”
