Exploring historic buildings is my new passion
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 — There is something striking and mesmerizing about walking into a building harboring a century of memories.
Earlier this month, sports editor Maddie and I embarked on a mini adventure, touring a piece of Lassen County neither of us had visited. We were able to visit the historic Winje’s Emporium and Hotel in Doyle.
As I walked down the hallway of the recently renovated and redecorated rooms on the second floor of the historical Doyle monument, I found myself wishing I could have experienced the building in its prime when it was the only lodging and gas station between Susanville and Reno.
The rooms were filled with antique furniture and mementos and the downstairs emporium boasted a wide array of interesting trinkets discovered in and surrounding the building.
