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

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
