The original structure was built in 1906 by Casper Schuler. It was the first brick-and-mortar building in Kremmling, Colorado. The first floor housed the Kremmling Bottling Works, which manufactured and dispensed sarsaprilla, ginger ale and lithrock. The building's second floor functioned as an 8-room boarding house. Called The Schuler House, it was managed by Miss Elise Kleinholz. In 1914, Casper sold the building to Miss Keinholz, whoc ontinued to operate it until 1933 when she sold the building to the Eastin family. The Eastins added 20 rooms, and changed the name to the Hotel Eastin. Mr. Eastin was a pharmacist, and opened a pharmacy in the former Kremmling Bottling Works space. (The pharmacy also doubled as the town's post office.) Two generations fo Eastins have operated the Hotel. Among notables who have stayed at The Hotel Eastin are John Wayne, author Zane Grey, and Burl Ives. The late, great John Wayne spent a week and a half at the Hotel while filiming the movie "True Grit." Well-known Western writer penned his famous book, "The Mysterious Rider" while staying at the Hotel in a room now named after him.
