Decades ago, people used to come from all over Central Oregon to stay in the old Madras Hotel and now, it’s days could be numbered.

 

Local businessman Miguel Segoviano bought the old hotel that was built in 1911 for about $100,000 recently and now is deciding what to do with it.

 

Segoviano says the building is in such disrepair it is too expensive to renovate.

 

 

"If you get into the inside of the hotel, you can start imagining what and early 1900's used to be and the first level, I believe that it's only 1 bathroom for the whole 15 rooms."

 

The three story building has quite an interesting story: it was originally built at the Oregon Trunk Railroad Depot site in southwest  Madras; but the owners moved it to downtown Madras in 1925 on rolling logs pulled by horses and mules to its present location.

 

Segoviano says he might just tear it down, unless her can find a buyer for it.
