One of the oldest and most historical buildings in Meeker, Colorado is the Meeker Hotel and Cafe. The story is told of Susan Wright who came to Meeker in 1883 from South Carolina and was the founder of this fine establishment. Susan Wright was the operator from 1883 until her premature death in 1893. At that point, her brother, Reuben Ball became the operator and by 1901 had expanded the structure into the impressive building it still is today.
