Description Hotel Baker construction ca. November 1928. A stable had previously occupied the site since the towns earliest days. By the 1920's in-town stabling of horses was no longer in demand. The hotel had its opening in August 1929, only to have the stock market tumble in October. The 300 local investors and one big investor from Portland never realized a gain. Construction of the 10-story tall building, still the tallest structure this side of the Cascade Mountains, was accomplished in only nine months.
