Jackson Hotel

-A A +A
1878. 220 Main St. (U.S. 285), at U.S. 50 (northwest corner of True Ave.) (NR)

For the town's principal hostelry, Henry A. Jackson brought in the lumber and furnishings, even the rosewood piano, by oxcart. The two-story L-plan structure accommodates thirty-one guest rooms. The hotel has a gable roof with overhanging eaves and decorative brackets, lap siding, and a second-story balcony to capitalize on splendid views of the Arkansas Valley and surrounding mountains. The corbeled brick chimney and frame outside stairs are two clues to its antiquity.
