Occidental Hotel- 300 N. Main

This three-story hotel was built in 1873, at a cost of $35,000, only two years after the town was founded. The Italianate architectural style is evident on the building by the exaggerated paired brackets, overhanging eaves and segmentally arched window heads.

A two-story piazza is one of the hotels most striking features. The city's first brick building, and the oldest commercial structure remaining from the "cowtown" period, the building was considered one of the finest hotels west of the Mississippi when constructed.
