HISTORY OF THE SILVER CLIFF HOTEL

The Lusk Herald, Peeks at the Past, April 14, 2021

First appeared in the April 18, 1946 issue

The Silver Cliff Hotel, which has been owned by Mr. and Mrs. P.P. Brown since 1926, has been sold to Mr. and Mrs. Roy Chamberlain. The hotel will be managed by Mr. and Mrs. Sharon Chamberlain, who will take over the duties of the new business the first of May.

Mr. and Mrs. Brown have been in the hotel business in Lusk for many years, as they were owners and operators of the Henry Hotel, now the Spencer Hospital, for a number of years prior to the purchase of the Silver Cliff in 1926. They sold the Henry Hotel to Mr. and Mrs. Glen Cates and purchased the Silver Cliff from A.E. Johnston. The Silver Cliff was built in 1918, during Lusk’s first oil boom days, and its first lessee and manager was E.O. Stratton. Now owner of Hotel Pendleton at Pendleton, Oregon. Mr. and Mrs. Brown leased the Silver Cliff for a time and bought the Royal Hotel in Cheyenne, which they operated for several years. The plans for Mr. and Mrs. Brown are still indefinite, but for the present they will take and apartment in the hotel, and Lusk.  Friends hope they will decide to stay here. Roy Chamberlain is well known in Wyoming hotel circles. He is the owner and manager of the Ranger Hotel, one of the finest hotels in the Rocky Mountain region.
