European Hotel

Year(s) Listed:
Location Class:
Built: 1888 | Year Saved: 2012
Contributor: Kansas Preservation Alliance

The European Hotel in Hutchinson was built in 1888 and has had many different names and businesses inside its walls throughout the years. The European hotel remained a hotel through the 40’s with a consistent turnover of business on the bottom floor. Wes and Gwen Bartlett’s dream of owning a bookstore became a reality in 2011 when they purchased the building. With the bookstore being a huge success in the lower commercial space floor the Bartletts turned their attention to the boarded up, unused uppers floors. The building now has 3 rental apartments and the owner’s residence which the Bartletts have moved into.

State and Federal historic preservation tax credits were utilized to fund this rehabilitation.
