The Smeede Hotel

by Tom November. 16, 2008 4539 views

Originally known as the Baker Hotel when it was Eugene's social center, it is in fine condition, though it is now the only 19th century building left intact in the center of downtown.

Baker's Hotel opened in 1885. In 1892 it was renamed the Hotel Eugene, in 1907 the Hotel Smeede and in 1914, the Smeede Hotel.

Like when people put, who, what, when, where and how. Nice set and story. Like the b&w with bricks. They go nicely together......always.
