PILOT BUTTE INN
This rustic sportsman's lodge was built in 1917 on the banks of the Deschutes River in Bend Oregon.
It was designed in the Craftsman Style by architect John E. Tourtellotte of Boise Idaho, and constructed of rock and wood local to the area.
The Pilot Butte Inn was one of the few well known accommodations in central Oregon.
It was frequented by Hollywood celebrities, and it is said that Eleanor Roosevelt enjoyed a trout dinner
The Inn fell on hard times in the 1960's, and was demolished in 1973.
This is a very nice salad plate from the Inn.
It measures 6 3/8" and was manufactured by Iroquois China.
The mark it bears dates from the 1940's to the early 1960's.
The picture of the Inn on the plate is almost identical to linen postcards printed of the Inn in the 1940's.
This plate has no chips or cracks.
This is a great little piece of history.
