About This Property

The Hotel Ritchey is one of the oldest commercial buildings still standing in Alpine. The adobe portion was built in the 1880s as a hotel. The frame addition was completed in 1908. Its primary use from 1886-1946 was as a hotel for ranchers and cowboys who drove the cattle herds to the railroad. It had a saloon and six rooms downstairs with nine rooms and a bathroom upstairs. From 1946 to 1978, it served as a boarding facility and rental property. Currently the site serves the community as the weekly farmer's market.
