The Historic Virginian Hotel



The Historic Virginian Hotel



From 1901-1911, August Grimm, the first Mayor of Medicine Bow, and his partner, George Plummer, built a three-story, concrete block hotel in Medicine Bow, and named it after Owen Wister's book "The Virginian." The Hotel can boast of the first electric lights and sewer system in town.

On September 30, 1911, the Virginian Hotel threw a gala party for its Grand Opening. In 1978, the Virginian Hotel received designation as a National Historic Place and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Hotel had a Grand Re-opening in 1984, after it had been completely renovated to its present turn of the century Victorian decor, preserving the best the Old West had to offer.
