Ansorge Hotel Museum
Constructed in 1903, the Ansorge Hotel, in Curlew, Washington, is the only old hotel still standing in Ferry County. It is a wood frame structure with tin siding made to resemble stone. Located near the railroad tracks, it opened its doors just as the Great Northern Railroad was coming into the country.
The ground floor contains a lobby, dining room, kitchen, and large billiard or game room. Nine bedrooms, one bathroom, and a sitting room comprise the upstairs. Most of the original furniture is on display, as well as dishes, clothing, pictures and numerous memorabilia. Don’t overlook details like the knotted rope ladders at each of the second-story windows.
The Ansorge Hotel is open May through September. Call to schedule a tour. Contact Julie Helmick at (509)779-4742 or Lynnie Lindgren at (509)-4823.
