209, 211,213, 215 W. Miner St.Originally built in 1879 to accommodate three separate businesses, this structure became the Power's Hotel, a fine two-story, twenty-room affair when the second story was added in 1882. Prior to the installation of room-dividing walls, a "Walking Match" was held upstairs with a purse of $50 to the winner, no doubt a publicity stunt to acquaint people with Mr. Powers' new venture. By 1888, the business became the Clarendon Hotel, was remodeled extensively a year later and wired for electricity in 1897 (first of any Yreka hotel). The Clarendon continued to operate into the 1960s, while an assortment of other businesses occupied the lower level.
