The Western Hotel Museum

  • 557 West Lancaster Blvd
  • Lancaster, CA 93534

Built around 1888, the Western Hotel Museum is downtown Lancaster's oldest surviving structure. As a hotel, it has gone through several names, including the Antelope Valley Hotel, the Gillwyn Hotel, and lastly, the Western Hotel (c. 1895). Its most famous owners were George and Myrtie Webber. Myrtie died in 1978 at the age of 110. You can almost feel the mood of the 1890s as you walk through the long, narrow hallways and wood-paneled rooms. The Western Hotel Museum is one of the most visible links Lancaster has to its heritage.
