WOLF CREEK, Ore. (AP) - The historic Wolf Creek Inn is expected to reopen May 1.
The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports (https://is.gd/FsdXUI ) details are still being ironed out, but plans call for state parks employees and volunteers to run operations, with the inn's restaurant remaining closed.
The state has been unable to find a concessionaire to operate the inn that's located off Interstate 5 between Roseburg and Grants Pass.
Regardless, the anticipated opening is welcome news for those in the unincorporated rural community that benefited from the many visitors who pulled off the freeway. The inn dates back to the early 1880s, about the time of the coming of the railroad to Josephine County.
It's been closed since the fall of 2014 for overhauls of heating, air conditioning and fire suppression systems.
