The Geiser Grand Hotel opened in November of 1889, during the midst of the gold rush. Originally named Hotel Warshauer, it was renamed The Geiser Grand when Albert Geiser bought it in 1900.
The hotel is stunning. It received a thorough renovation in the 1990s that restored its beautiful stained-glass ceiling, mahogany woodwork, and intricate chandeliers.
Back in its early days, the Geiser Grand was THE place to go for social events and fine dining. It was called “The Queen of the Mines,” and wealthy residents of Baker City and their guests partied here every weekend.
Some of those folks from the early 20th century may have never left the hotel; there are several stories of hauntings here and based on various reported sightings, the hotel may be haunted
