If only the walls could talk, The Historic Virginian Hotel completed in 1911 was used as a “gathering place” and formerly was the largest hotel between Denver, Colorado, and Salt Lake City, Utah. A National Historic Landmark, The Virginian has not changed hands in over 100 years. Named from the novel by Owen Wister, The Virginian, the hotel has been the site of multiple movies and television series over the past century in an authentic western setting. Guests take a step back in time with lush velvet draperies, Victorian wallpaper, clawfoot tubs, antique sleeping rooms, and suites allowing this historical resting place as a desired location.

The Hotel is essentially an entire city block consisting of multiple buildings totaling 58 rooms. Although The Historic Virginian is a piece of history, most rooms provide modern amenities including cable television, microwave, and refrigerators. The Hotel is currently operating as lodging and dining and can continue to do so. However, the potential for change is limitless. For example, partially converting to workforce housing for the various construction projects in the Medicine Bow vicinity; creating a museum destination with overnight accommodations; establishing a retreat destination for large groups with tours, and an RV park expansion for seasonal travelers to name a few.
