Wheeler Hotel

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 7 July 2019 in Business & Industry.

The Old Wheeler Hotel was built in 1920. The hotel was very successful as the Pacific Railway had completed a link between Portland and Wheeler. The railroad facilitated the transport of timber from the vast old-growth Tillamook Forest through which it ran, to the lumber and shingle mills of Wheeler. In 1933, not only was there the Great Depression but a series of forest fires broke out and devastated the timber industry in the area. Patronage declined and the hotel was bought and turned into an arthritis clinic. The building was eventually sold again and was turned back into a hotel.

You captured the cozy warmth well, nice colors. I think it is more suited to a hotel so nice that it converted back to its original purpose
