The old Victory Hotel was built in 1894 as a Hunting lodge, Hotel and
Stage stop. She was first named the Evans House until WWI when the
name was changed to the Victory Hotel when highway 40 was named
Victory Way from coast to coast.
There have been a few famous guests such as Teddy Rosevelt, theAstors
of New York, and Granny Barber said Butch Cassidy & Sundance stayed
a few times as Browns Park was a good hideout.
The Catherines owned it a while, then Jim & Ruby Wooden took it over around 1963.
they ran it as a private home with a few hunters stopping in. Oneta and I started working on it in 1991 and ran it
from various cities until moving in full time around 10 years ago.
