ID: 5231
Construction Date: Start Date: 1903
End Date: 1904
Notes: The owner and manager of the Hotel Maryland in 1914 was Daniel Moore Linnard (1867-1949); the hotel was rebuilt the same year according to plans drawn up by Pasadena architect, Myron Hunt (1868-1952).
Demolition Note: Destroyed by fire, 04/18/1914; the fire value was set at $650,000;
Alteration Note: Hunt and Burns proposed an addition to the Hotel Maryland #1 in 1910; it is unclear if this was built; like many large hotels in Southern California at the time, in addition to the large multi-story hotel itself, small bungalows were built on the same property; guests dislocated by the 1914 fire were relocated to these bungalows;
Building History: John Parkinson was credited with being the architect for the Hotel Maryland #1 in the Western Architect, 07/1907, unnumbered plate. Myron Hunt designed the rustic pergola composed of round columns supporting peeled, natural branches or tree trunks in 1903.
