In 1900, Agnes (Aggie) Chamberlin moved from Kansas to Cody and went to work for Buffalo Bill at the Cody Enterprise newspaper office. Across the street from that office was a sagebrush-covered vacant lot. This lot would eventually become the Chamberlin Hotel. In 1903, Agnes opened her first boarding house on that lot and later her husband Mark built a small brick office building, invented a dentist license, and began pulling teeth. The original building was gradually expanded as Aggie enlarged her boarding house. Over the next 14 years, several buildings were combined to create the Chamberlin Hotel. As a result, many of the interior walls of the hotel were brick. (During our recent renovation these walls and their secrets were uncovered and restored.)
