Destroyed by fire in 1868. Rebuilt in 1868, is the only remaining one of five hotels which served the Inskip mining district.

A gold strike in the early 1850’s brought in a population of over one thousand by 1860.

Inskip was the major midway station on the old Oroville-Susanville-Honey Lake Road.

A distance of about 140 rugged miles of dust and mud.
