Wheat Growers Hotel


category : Historic Hotels
Wheat Growers Hotel Constructed in 1918 the Wheat Growers Hotel is located in Kimball. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel is significant for its association with the commercial development of Kimball and with the building boom of second-generation hotels that was occurring statewide during the first quarter of the twentieth century. The hotels built during this period, as exemplified by the Wheat Growers, were multistory, brick buildings that offered the most modern conveniences and catered especially to businessmen who traveled on the railroad. Aside from providing pleasant quarters for travelers, the new hotels became the symbols of prospering communities with a bright future. For this reason, towns and cities of all sizes thought it was important to showcase a "modern" hotel as an indication of their prominent standing in the state. It is within this context that the importance of the Wheat Growers Hotel is realized.
