1. Pilot Butte Inn Site Marker
Inscription.  This is the site of the Pilot Butte Inn, which was known far and wide as an excellent small hotel. Built by Philips Brooks of the Brooks Mill Family, the Inn was the focal point for community activities for many years. A massive lava rock fireplace, wrought iron detailing and a six-foot-by seventy-foot plate glass window imported from France placed the inn in a class by itself. Over the years the Inn hosted many famous people, including Eleanor Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover. The Inn was demolished in 1973 after a long battle by local citizens to save it.
 
Erected by Deschutes Historical Museum. (Marker Number B22.)
