Wolf Creek Inn

The Wolf Creek Inn is the oldest continuous use hotel in the state of Oregon. Built in 1883 by pioneer merchant Henry Smith, the inn was billed as a “first-class traveler’s hotel” for folks traveling on the stagecoach. The building was first called Wolf Creek Tavern, an old English term describing a hotel that served food. By the 1880s Henry Smith had accumulated large land holdings, many of which he planted in orchards that still stand today. In fact, the large apple and pear trees located next to the inn north of the dining room are part of an orchard planted in 1885.
