The following year, a new hotel called the Klamath Inn was built by W. T. Bailey.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The inn flourished for many years until the local commercial fishing industry closed down in 1933.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The inn was bought and sold over the years and in 1985 Paul and Donna Hamby restored and reopened it in 1986. &nbsp;Again it was sold in 2002 to David and Barbara Gross who officially renamed it the Historic Requa Inn after the original town of Requa, a fish cannery center on the river in the 1800s.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>A hotel for more than 100 years, the Requa is the only historic lodging located in the center of the Redwood National Park. Originally a 22-bed hotel, it now has10 rooms, all with private baths. &nbsp;It has been included on the National Geographic Traveler’s “Stay List,” a collection of 129 so-called “We Love” hotels in North America.</div><div><br /><br /> Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:42:49 +0000 Betsy Byers 13155 at http://ijpr.org
