Troutdale Hotel

Address: On Bear Creek, W. of Evergreen

Started in the late 1800s as a group of log cabins and a one-story hotel. In 1920 Harry Sidles, a Nebraska businessman, opened a new four-story luxury hotel with pond, pool and golf course. Through the 20s and 30s Troutdale was one of the most popular and fashionable resorts of the west. World War II forced closings and several later owners tried to restore it to its former glory, but it was razed in 1994. It was at times been called Troutdale In The Pines. Name source unknown.
