Historic Hotel in Groveland, California


Newspaper clipping and photo of Groveland Hotel from 1875Originally an adobe trading post built in 1849, the Groveland Hotel has had many incarnations over its 163 years – Gambling House, Saloon, Hotel, Ranger Station, business offices, and even a Greyhound Bus Stop. It was known as “the best house on the hill” during the Gold Rush, and this hotel in Groveland, California may be the only Sierra Nevada Mountain building constructed in the Monterey Adobe architectural style that was popular during the late 1840s and 1850s.
