ASHLAND, OREGON PROPERTY EST. 1925 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES The Ashland Springs Hotel opened as the Lithia Springs Hotel in 1925; it was a natural stopping place for visitors traveling between California and the Northwest. With a mix of Gothic and Beaux-Arts elements, the nine-story hotel stood proudly as the tallest building between Portland and San Francisco. In 1960, the hotel was renamed the Mark Antony, in recognition of the growing popularity of the nearby Oregon Shakespeare Festival, but by 1997, the once-beautiful structure had been closed and abandoned. In 1998, an extensive renovation of the property uncovered and restored many of its original features and enhanced it with state-of-the-art systems, an elegant conservatory, and a charming English garden. The famous Lithia Springs water was reputed to be the purest and healthiest in America.
