Built in 1904 - Destroyed by earthquake in 1983

Jim Rockwell started construction on his hotel during the oil boom of the 1900's. The boom was unsurpassed in fast money, hard work, and rough play. People were sleeping in the streets with their pockets full of money and no place to stay. The Rockwell Building served these needs as a hotel upstairs and a business center on the ground level until 1983.
