Hotel Chadron/Olde Main Street Inn (Chadron, NE)
Built by the O’Hanlon family in 1890, the elegant Chadron House was adorned with gold and green wallpaper, carpet from Brussels and marble washstands in each room. Some of those luxuries remain for modern day tourists who visit the place which has been run by three generations of innkeepers for more than 100 years. Once a booming business in the National Register District downtown, the hotel is among a handful of local sites that have remained in continuous service.
