The Melbourne Hotel was first opened on the evening of September 23, 1924, with several hundred guests in attendance.

Elton Hall was the promoter of the hotel and celebrated his 36th birthday on the day of the opening.

That same year (1924), the Melbourne Municipal Band was organized (D.P. Barber, Director), the Melbourne State Bank opened in the "banking rooms of the hotel," prize fighter Jack Dempsy stopped at the Maddox Cafe in Melbourne, and a bear was killed near the city by hunters.

Electric power (furnished by the Melbourne Utilities Co.) was unpredictable and if one of the two boilers was inoperative, the town, as well as the new hotel, could be without lights for several nights.
