Building History

The Bakersfield Californian reported in 1910 that J.W. Jamieson would be erecting a new hotel in Taft: "J.W. Jamieson will construct a $45,000 modern hotel in Taft. The plans for the new hotel have almost been completed by Train & Williams, the Los Angeles firm of architects which has opened a branch office here. The building will be a two-story one, with 35 rooms. The first floor will consist of a lobby dining room, storeroom, kitchen and bar. The second will be all rooms. Each room will have a private bath. Everything throughout the hotel will be modern. Steam heat will be supplied throughout the building, and will be controlled from every room." (See "$45,000 Hotel for Taft Is Being Planned," Bakersfield Californian, vol XXI, no. 162, 02/07/1910, p. 1.)
