Historic Hood River
Country Club Inn
Okay, history sleuths, here’s a mystery which needs solving. In the early part of the twentieth Century there was an establishment in Hood River called the “Country Club Inn.” As you see here it burned in 1911.
This article describes its construction and location in 1903. You can read here about Grandma Munra, who prepared the food. Several articles speak quite fondly of her. And you can read some more about it here. But where was it? We have great hints like “Riverview Park” and “sloping bank of the Columbia to the west of town near the old ice house site.”
I’m a little confused how a hotel constructed in 1903 was considered “old and well-known” just eight years later. Let’s figure this out. And when you have solved this problem, get back to work locating “Shushula”.
