While visiting Oatman we had lunch in the Oatman Hotel & Restaurant. As you can see by the sign, it was established in 1902. Little history behind the hotel, this is the hotel that Clark Gable and Carol Lombard spent there honeymoon.
When you walk into this place, you realize how special it is. The inside is covered with dollar bills. On the walls, on the ceiling, and the doors and windows! It all started back in the mining days.
When the miners would get there paycheck, they would go to the bar, place a dollar down on the bar, and drink til the dollar ran out. It became a tradition to staple the dollars onto the bar. Then they migrated onto the walls and ceiling. Like wallpaper. Weird but very cool. Every surface you can imagine is covered in dollar bills. No surface is immune.
Now, visitors are encouraged to take a dollar bill from there pocket, write on it, and staple it up on the wall for all to see. So, of course we had to continue the tradition. Now when we go back to Oatman, we can visit our dollar and remember our time here.
