History of Claremont Hotel, Berkeley, CA

In the 19th Century, it was but a fantasy in a young prospector's mind.  Later, it became a castle for he and his wife.  In 1915, it was reborn as a grand hotel, in time for the San Francisco Fair of 1915.

Old postcards of the hotel can be viewed at

History of the hotel can be found on the back of an old Claremont Hotel menu at

The Claremont Hotel and Grounds are an official city of Oakland landmark.
