Located 20 miles north of Grants Pass Oregon.
Exit 76 - on Interstate 5.
The Wolf Creek Inn is the oldest continuous use hotel in the state of Oregon. Built in 1883 by pioneer merchant Henry Smith, the inn was billed as a "first-class traveler's hotel" for folks traveling on the stagecoach. The building was first called Wolf Creek Tavern, an old English term describing a hotel that served food.
I love country stores. Each is unique and each one tells something about the owners and the community.
This one has a bulletin board, two pay phones, various newspaper holders, a kindling holder, two wagon wheels, Christmas decorations, a window full of advertisements and displays....
.... and one hand-carved, bigger-than-life wooden Indian.
I do realize displaying the wooden Indian is offensive to some Native Americans. I do not mean to be insensitive but rather am recording what I see.
