The Hotel Leland
Parker Hotels – The Hotel Leland – in 1904 the Hotel Leland had 110 rooms that were steam heated, electrically lighted and finely equipped. The Leland also had a large, pretentious dining room that could seat 1oo people. One of the specialties was buffalo steaks from the Parker’s famous bufflo herds on their ranch in the Des Lacs Area. The Leland Hotel building also was the home to many other businesses on Main Street over the years. The location of the Leland Hotel is now a parking lot on the north end of Main Street at Central Avenue. Pictured below is the Leland Hotel in the 1950's and also in the early 1900's.
