DONATE to the Excelsior Foundation (Covid19 announcement) ExcelsiorGMApril 25, 2020April 26, 2020 Uncategorized The Excelsior Foundation is a 501C3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of several historic properties in Jefferson, Texas, including The Excelsior House Hotel, The Ruth Lester Memorial House, The Jefferson Playhouse, and Jay Gould’s Historic Railroad Car. Financial support for all of these properties is generated mainly by hotel revenue. Of course, we are grateful to all of our guests who are staying safe and sheltering in place during COVID 19. Our hotel staff has also been sheltering in place for all of the month of April. We encourage you to keep us in mind when you’re ready to travel again, and we hope you will book a room in the not too distant future. If you can’t foresee travelling, but would like to help us out in these difficult days, all donations large or small are appreciated, and all are tax-deductible.
