Hotel Eaton, Interior Shot; Wichita, KS

Hotel Eaton, Interior Shot; Wichita, KS
An interior view of the Hotel Eaton in Wichita, KS c. 1900. Interior woodwork / carpentry and all doors and windows in this photo was completed by W.H. Sternberg (1832 – 1906). This structure was erected (in part by W.H. Sternberg) for John B. Carey an Irish immigrant and one-time Mayor of Wichita. It opened on January 1, 1887 towards the end of an extraordinary economic boom period in Kansas. Fortunes were made and fortunes were lost and Sternberg participated in both. He (Sternberg) built and lived in a large and wonderfully ornate Victorian model showhome (built in 1886 for $25,000). By comparision this Carey Hotel (aka "Carey House") cost $100,000 in 1887. Sternberg was only here at his wonderful mansion for 3 years when the bust caught up with him and he finally sold out to a friend and moved to lesser quarters. Sternberg was the single biggest contractor in Wichita for about 30 years (1875 – 1906) when Wichita was one of the fastest (if not the fastest – by some accounts) growing cities in the entire country, fueled mainly by real estate speculation. Buildings were going up at a frantic pace! In 1886-1887 with a population of only about 20,000 people, Wichita had almost 3,000 new buildings completed in 12-month period! That’s about one newly completed structure for every 6 persons! Interestingly the original gas/electric parlor chandeliers in Sternberg Mansion were very similar to the ones seen here, a sort of 4-up & 4-down square design. Unfortunately those gas/electric chandeliers in Sternberg Mansion were stolen by vandals in 1975 and never recovered, although photos of them exist and will be posted to this photostream. Both the Hotel Eaton (this photo) and Sternberg Mansion are still standing today and both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As of March, 2010, Sternberg Mansion was selected as a "Most Endangered Historic Property" in the State of Kansas by the Kansas Preservation Alliance.

This was the hotel (but this is not the bar area of the hotel) where Carrie Nation entered in 1900 on her temperance campaign singing hymns, while smashing liquor bottles with her hatchet and thowing billard balls at the suggestive "Cleopatra at the Bath" painting on the wall.

Carrie Nation wasn’t a small woman as photos of her tend to indicate. She was a large woman (about 6′ high), well-built, sturdy and strong willed at that! Although her family background was somewhat unusual, she had good reasons to believe that alcohol was at the root of many social problems. Her first marriage ended two years after it began, mainly because her husband (a doctor) was a severe alcoholic and he died less than a year after the divorce. One of Kansas’s more colorful people, Carrie Nation was arrested over 30 times for "hatchetations" (as she called them). Either by herself or with other hymn-singing women she would march into a bar – singing and praying all the while smashing bar fixtures and liquor bottles with a hatchet. Since she was repeatedly jailed for her offenses, Mrs. Nation paid her jail fines from lecture-tour fees and sales of souvenir hatchets. Today, her birth home in Medicine Lodge, Kansas is a National Historic Landmark.

I am always impressed with these ornate tile floors which are perfectly aligned and symmetrical from one end of the room to the other!

I had the opportunity to stay here at this hotel when it was still really a hotel. It was nothing like hotels today. Although it had been physically beaten down from years of neglect and abuse (I think hotel rooms were about $19.00/night then), it exuded a strong aura of old-time quality and luxury. Wood trim was thick and heavy and luxuriously milled. Window shutters were heavy real wood hand-crafted shutters where individual pieces of wood were larger and heavier than any shutters today. The main staircase with it’s gas newel posts and cracked but elegantly patterned tile floors told of a day when ladies and gentlemen dined in the first class white linen dining room with fans slowly turning overhead. The walls had absorbed all the smells for over 100 years and there was a slight hint of ladies perfume, fine liquors and cigars. Bathrooms were not in each room however (maybe there were a few rooms with their own but certainly not most rooms). Bathrooms were located at the end of each hallway – they were communal. So there were four bathrooms on each floor. I can just imagine a waiting line in the hallway to use the bathroom in the morning. The bathrooms were certainly upscale with thick marble lavatories, large and ornate oversized iron tubs, fancy solid cast brass fixtures. Yet for the day, multiple bathrooms on each floor were a big improvement and having one no further than the nearest corner . . . wow! Bathrooms were really for bathing and toileting (at this hotel) since all the rooms in the Carey Hotel had hot and cold running water from the time it

Carey Hotel; Wichita, KS

Carey Hotel; Wichita, KS
This is a photo from about 1937 of what was then the Eaton Hotel (officially, "Hotel Eaton") at 523 East Douglas Avenue in Wichita, KS. This structure is confirmed to have been built (in part) by William Henry Sternberg (1832 – 1906). Sternberg was responsible for all exterior doors and windows and all interior woodwork, carpentry and trim on this structure. John B. Carey (an Irish immigrant and one-time mayor of Wichita) built this five-story Second Empire style hotel in 1886 and it opened on January 1st, 1887. It was called, "Carey House". "Second Empire" is called that for the reign of Napoleon III (1852-1870) and it’s easy to identify the style because it’s almost always represented by a mansard roof with dormers projecting out of the mansard part (like on the top floor here). This hotel was erected at the handsome cost of $100,000 in 1886 and it had a reputation as the most luxurious hotel in the Midwest. The Carey House prided itself on being a truly "modern" hotel that had steam heat, a steam-powered elevator and hot and cold running water for each hotel room! In the late 1890s, this hotel was managed by Mr. Ben Eaton. When Carey passed away his heirs (then in Chicago) sold this structure to Mr. Eaton in 1899 for $70,000. In 1900, it was re-named the "Hotel Eaton". This structure is still standing and today is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. (The building to the left is the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) hall).

The Eaton Hotel had a major alteration at about the time that Ben Eaton acquired it… originally, the entire hotel was bricked down to the the ground (similar to what’s seen on the very far left side of the hotel). The renovation "opened-up" the northeast corner of the hotel (which includes all of those larger windows wrapping around the northeast corner and the windows along the north side between the two arches). All of these windows were not original and were added later. See other photo in photostream called, "Carey Hotel; Wichita, KS" for image of what this hotel looked like BEFORE it’s ground floor window alteration. Also the hotel was painted white at this time in the 1930s. Originally it was a red brick and today it again is back to red brick, but that wasn’t always the case.

In 1900, the bar of this hotel was one of the places that hatchet-wielding Carrie Nation came into one evening smashing mirrors and causing other mayhem and damage such as throwing billiard balls at a suggestive painting on the wall entitled, "Cleopatra at the Bath". Although her methods of combatting immorality and alcohol use were sensational, there were good reasons to combat a rapidly growing use of alcohol, specifically . . .

As the American Revolution approached, economic change and urbanization were accompanied by increasing poverty, ordinances were relaxed and alcohol problems increased dramatically. Influenced by reports that excessive use of alcohol was injurious to physical and psychological health, communities began to form temperance associations as early as the 1780s. In the early 1800s, temperance associations began to spread throughout the New England area and some of these were large state-wide organizations.

The temperance movement seemed reasonable as it didn’t advocate complete abstinence but rather restrained moderation or levelness . But many of the leaders overestimated their strength. They expanded their activities and took positions on observance of the Sabbath, and other moral issues. They became involved in political in-fighting and by the early 1820s their movement stalled.

But some leaders persevered in pressing their cause forward. The American Temperance Society was formed in 1826 and benefited from a renewed interest in religion and morality. Within 12 years it claimed more than 8,000 local groups and over 1,500,000 members. By 1839, 18 temperance journals were being published throughout the United States.

In 1880 the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) established a Department of Scientific Temperance Instruction in Schools and Colleges, with Mary Hunt as National Superintendent. She believed that voters "must first be convinced that alcohol and kindred narcotics are by nature outlaws, before they will outlaw them". Elizabeth Gelok, a well-known instructor of Scientific Temperance Instruction decided to use legislation to persuade young students, who would be the next generation of voters. This gave birth to the idea of the compulsory Scientific Temperance Instruction Movement.

By the turn of the century, Mary Hunt’s efforts along with Elizabeth’s and the other teacher’s proved to be highly successful. Virtually every state, the District of Columbia, and all United States possessions had strong legislation mandating that all students receive anti-alcohol education. Furthermore, the implementation of this legislation was
