Memorabilia III

This red 1947 Indian isn’t the model that Burt Munro rode to set the land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats, but it reflects his judgment: “You live more in five minutes flat-out on a bike like this than most people do in a lifetime.”

This hand-carved life-sized John Wayne was purchased from a famous California collection of Americana. We’ve placed it near the Front Desk so he can greet arriving guests with the famous phrase “Howdy Pardner!”

This tawny mountain lion was shot by a security guard after being treed in the parking lot behind the hotel as it was stalking one of our 21 dealers.

There are Larry Bute murals in the halls of every floor in the hotel. This energetic and colorful tribute to White Pine County is on the 5th floor.
