Groundbreaking scheduled for historic Barfield building in downtown Amarillo

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - A groundbreaking has been scheduled tomorrow for downtown Amarillo’s historic Barfield building.

As downtown Amarillo continues to revitalize and preserve its historic properties, the same goes for the restoration being done to the Barfield, as it’s transformed into the Barfield Marriott, a part of the hospitality chain’s boutique Autograph Collection hotels.

Center City invites the public to attend the Barfield groundbreaking and celebrate the beginning of Amarillo’s first boutique hotel. The Barfield will move into the historic Oliver-Eakle Building at 6th Avenue and Polk Street.

The groundbreaking is scheduled for Wednesday, March 6 at 104 SW 6th Street.

The event begins at 12:30 p.m. with a meet and greet, a ceremony with speakers at 1:00 p.m., followed by the official groundbreaking.

The Amarillo Convention and Visitor Council estimates the hotel to be completed by late 2019.
