Historic Lodging in Wyoming (Elk Mountain Inn and Mountain View Hotel)

Elk Mountain
(102 E. Main Street, Elk Mountain, WY)

This hotel was constructed in 1905.  In 1880 a dance hall was built on the property. It became an informal social
center for the community and surrounding areas. Since the dance hall was the only community gathering place within a
50-mile radius, it became an important element of the town.


Mountain View
(Snowy Range Road and Weber Creek Road, Centennial, WY)

The Mountain View Historic Hotel was built by the Isaac Van Horn-Fred Miller Syndicate as part of the grand plan for Centennial, which included a dance pavilion, a bank, a newspaper office and a polo grounds.  The original hotel was painted white with black trim and was built at a
cost of $8,000.  It boasted 20 guest rooms, dining room and a “most improved system of plumbing.”  The bathrooms, however, ended up in the
stables.  It opened in time for the much anticipated arrival of the Laramie Plains, Hahns Peak & Pacific Railroad on July 4th, 1907 and was dedicated in a “golden spike” ceremony.
