Biographical Sketch of Antoxe Hinkey

The popular proprietor of the Commercial Hotel at Nampa is a native of Ottawa, Illinois, where he was born April 2, 1857, his ancestors having come from Germany. His early education was obtained in the public schools of Ottawa, where he remained until reaching his eighteenth year, when he went to Nevada and engaged in farming and stock-raising until 1888 and then he came to Nampa and built the Commercial House, which has done the greater part of the hotel business of the town. The building is fifty by sixty feet, two stories in height, and contains thirty nicely furnished rooms. Mr. Hinkey is a most accommodating host, sparing no pains to make the traveling public feel at home and comfortable in his house. The hotel is centrally located, convenient to the trains and the town and has the majority of the transient trade.
