Big Chief Hotel
Pond (Wildwood)

The Pierce-Pennant Oil Company built the Big Chief in 1929. The restaurant, gas station and 62 cabins with attached garages surrounded a beautiful courtyard. Manager Si Hensien said every guest "got a square deal, very well fed and what they want to drink". The main building remains as B. Donovan's St Louis Grill.
