Linda Lentz, who bought the building with her daughter in 2000, is the eighth owner of the Bross Hotel. She researched and wrote a booklet about the Bross's first hundred years in 2006.
Delta County Commissioners recently named two historical landmarks, one being the Rogers Mesa Community House, the other the historic Bross Hotel.
The Bross was built in 1906 and according to early newspapers, was Delta County's first luxury hotel (and early on, its only one.)
Now, after over 100 years and eight different owners, the Bross is a bed & breakfast.
