Hotel magnate Conrad Hilton purchased the Mobley Hotel in 1919 and rented rooms to traveling oil field workers. Preserved and restored by the Hilton estate, the building now serves as the headquarters for the local Chamber of Commerce. The building also includes a small museum with exhibits that tell the history of Conrad Hilton's hotel empire as well as exhibits related to the history of Cisco.
