Artist's Description

Stay at the Wolf Creek Inn in the same room that Clark Gable and Carol Lombard and reflect on how it was back in the 1930’s. when you look in the mirror that they used.
The Wolf Creek Inn was built around 1883 for Henry Smith, a local merchant-entrepreneur. Wolf Creek Tavern, as it was known then, was exceptionally well crafted by local sawyers. It served local traffic to mines and stage travelers connecting between Roseburg and Redding prior to the completion of the Oregon and California railroad through the Siskiyou Mountains in 1887.
Wolf Creek Inn is the oldest continuously operated hotel in the Pacific Northwest. It is here that Jack London completed his novel “Valley Of The Moon”. As an important stop on the 16 day stagecoach journey from San Francisco to Portland, the Wolf Creek Inn has housed practically every important person found in the Northwest during the early history of Oregon.
Back in the early days of movies, the Inn became a refuge for beleaguered actors seeking an escape from demanding Hollywood studios. Clark Gable was a good friend of the innkeeper in the 1930’s and stopped by several times while fishing the Rogue River just a few miles west of the Inn. Other visitors that have signed the guest register include Carol Lombard and Orson Wells. (Information provided by Oregon Parks & Recreation Dept.)

Between 1975 and 1979, the Inn was acquired by the State of Oregon and restored. Wolf Creek Tavern is listed in the National Register of Historic Places #72001081. It is among the best preserved and oldest active travelers inn, in Oregon, that still provides lodging and meals to the weary traveler. Taken with a Canon S5 IS on June 4, 2009 in Wolf Creek, Oregon
