Prescott in Yavapai County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
The Ehle Family and the Montezuma Hotel
The Ehles built a log house at the southwest corner of Goodwin and Marina Streets. In the fall of 1868, they opened the Montezuma Hotel at the northwest corner of Willis and Montezuma streets where the Coronado Apartments, which were apparently built between 1910 and 1924, are today. The Arizona Miner reported on October 10, 1868 that "[t]his hotel is now in full blast and is crowded with guests. Mr. Ehle sets a first-class table." By 1869, they had built a residence next door at 214 North Montezuma Street. The house presently at this location was built between 1890 and 1895. Mrs. Ehle died there in 1905. Joseph Ehle died in 1912
