A Historic Gem with a Rich Legacy

Housed in a building that’s over 100 years old, the Inn on the River has been a beloved destination for relaxation and memory-making for the past 37 years. Before it became the Inn, the building was part of the Snyder “drugless” Sanitarium, which would be akin to today’s wellness spas. This historical gem, now an official Texas Historic Landmark, is located on the Paluxy River in the Historic District of Glen Rose, just a block from the Courthouse Square in Somervell County. The Texas Historic Commission and the Glen Rose Historic Preservations Committee have both recognized the building as a significant landmark.
