Alta Peruvian /
Once used as nurse’s barracks during World War II, the structure was broken down, relocated & melded back together. With its silvery aluminum roof shining in the sunlight below Mount Superior, the Peruvian was born. Constructed over six decades ago, the Peruvian originated as two World War II barracks that were sliced into four parts & hauled up the steep Little Cottonwood Canyon to Alta, Utah. Lead by Ed Gibbs & his family, the barracks were reconstructed, reconfigured and repurposed and placed at the base of the Alta Ski area. By the ski season of 1948, the Peruvian Lodge was open. Founded around 1865, Alta first served as an old mining town. The mining business boomed in the early 1870’s and a variety of settlements were established in the canyon area. In the late 1880’s, an expansive fire and devastating avalanche destroyed most of the original town leaving Alta a ghost town.
Purchased in 1970 by John Cahill, the Peruvian received a well-deserved facelift and upgrades to the facilities.
Today the Peruvian is a well-known Alta landmark and has evolved into a charming and authentic ski lodge that offers excellent food, warm pools and great staff. It’s just who we are.
The Iron Horse Hotel /
The Iron Horse Hotel represents the transformation of a 100-year-old warehouse into a modern luxury boutique hotel. In 1907, William Berger commissioned the distinguished Milwaukee architectural firm of Buemming and Dick to build the warehouse for the Berger Bedding Company. The location on the railroad offered excellent shipping facilities. The building was divided into the factory (today’s hotel) and the warehouse (Smyth, located behind the building’s firewall). The bedding company remained until 1927 when it became the Molitor Box Company, after a purchase by George Molitor Hormuth. In 1955, it became cold storage until Tim Dixon of Dixon Development LLC purchased it in 2005. The name of The Iron Horse Hotel reflects the duality of our unique location. Native Americans referred to the train as the “iron horse” as it sped through the prairies.
Today, the hotel remains nestled along an historic yet active railroad. Located at the origination and termination point of the tracks means that The Iron Horse Hotel guest is treated to the slow chug of freight cars a few times each day. Today’s pop culture also refers to the motorcycle as the modern iron horse, a name befitting our location near the Harley-Davidson Museum, a monumental achievement by this Milwaukee-based manufacturer. After the name was chosen, it was discovered that the building’s century-old distinct carved capitals serendipitously resembled an “I” in the shape of a horse head and an “H.” The icon was born and now subtly graces areas of the hotel.
The Iron Horse Hotel is part of an urban revitalization that integrates irreplaceable historic architecture with the latest in luxury amenities, technology and environmental sustainability – from the re-use of the building and reclaimed materials for design elements to the ample covered motorcycle parking that encourages use of more fuel-efficient transportation.
