Groveland Hotel
18767 Main Street
Groveland
Built in 1850
Expanded 1915

Built in 1850, the Groveland Hotel is one of the finest examples of Gold Rush adobe commercial architecture to be seen today.

Groveland is the only town in the Mother Lode to boast of a collection of four adobe buildings which date from the early 1860s. The hotel is the largest adobe building in Groveland and is one of the oldest buildings in Tuolumne County.

The wood frame Groveland Hotel Annex, built in 1915, is one of the finest examples of NeoClassical architecture in Tuolumne County. The annex and the neighboring Hotel Charlotte are the largest wood frame structures to have survived from the Hetch Hetchy project. Three other hotels, four project buildings, as well as many smaller commercial structures and dwelling houses which were erected during the Hetch Hetchy era are now gone.

The Groveland Hotel was first used as a trading post, then a dwelling house until 1868. From 1868 until 1969, it was either a hotel or a hoarding house.
