Blue Lake Union Hotel & Saloon

Blue Lake; "Second location--Railroad Ave across from depot; Union Hotel--Owned by Mr. Rousseau"

I am fortunate enough to be very busy with client work right now, but miss posting to this blog.  So… I thought I’d dig up a photo I liked and at least share that. 

The single pane double-hung windows tell me this building isn’t very old–likely built after the big fire (1911, I think).   You gotta love those swinging “saloon” doors…

    great photo
    wonder why it is called the Union Hotel. Could it be associated with the Union Company? I would like to know–just out of curiosity.

      Maybe Union Company… I live on Glendale but really don’t know much about this area. If I hear, I’ll let you know.

    I just wanted to mention that I’m glad you’re continuing to post, even though you’re busy with your other projects. Yours is one of my favorite blogs!

    That might be the saloon my said her brother watered at when she was a teen. She lived right next to the rail road tracks in the old Broderick house in Blue Lake.
