The Magnolia Hotel, a boutique hotel in downtown Dallas, is located in one of the city's most revered historic buildings, the former headquarters of Mobil Oil's predecessor, the Magnolia Petroleum Co.- hence, where the Magnolia name comes from. Built in 1921, the 29-story structure designed by British architect Sir Alfred Bossom was the first high-rise in the United States to have air conditioning, and was the city's first skyscraper at more than 400-feet high. The 29-story neoclassical style office tower was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River when it opened in 1922. The building's landmark was a statue of Pegasus, the mythical flying red horse. Today, the Pegasus has been restored, proudly adorning the building and illuminated at night in downtown Dallas. The building retains its gold-leafed, coffered ceilings and antique chandeliers in the original elevator lobby, and the brass Pegasus emblems have been preserved in the elevators.
