Plumas County mounts campaign to preserve historic hotel

MOHAWK, Calif. (AP) ” Neighbors and county officials are rallying to save a Gold Rush-era hotel that overlooks a scenic Plumas County valley.

The owner of the White Sulphur Springs Hotel wants to tear down the three-story building, which has fallen into disrepair.

Scott Lawson, the director of the Plumas County Museum, says the 1858 hotel is an icon of Mohawk Valley.

Owner Stephen Luczo bought the hotel in 2003 so he could enjoy the area with family friends, according to property manager Jack May. He had planned to restore it but has been prohibited from doing so by the county, May says.
