Hospitality | Print |  E-mail
Sunday, September 28 2014 06:46

Not long ago hospitality belonged to everyone, not just professionals.  Southerners thought hospitality so important, it became part of our identity.  Still practiced in some places, hospitality exists for the most part as an industry.  

Perhaps necessity plays some part in its history.

In our recent past, say the last 100 years, we've moved from an agrarian, mostly rural, culture to an industrial society.  People left the farms to make a home in cities, small and large.  During the infancy of this movement, hospitality from individuals played an important and necessary role.  Those with jobs and homes established in "town" would often recognize the newcomer, invite them into their homes, and help them land a job.  If the stranger worked hard, saved their money, did their share around their hosts home, then they could establish themselves and bring their families to this new life.

In those days the luxury of hotel stays and restaurant meals didn't much fit in the middle class economy.
