KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Storage rooms, corner closets and staff workspaces at the Baldwin Hotel Museum will be the subject of a special tour to be offered Saturday, July 9.
The “Back Room” tour will be offered at 11 a.m., and again at 1 p.m. Cost for the hour-long guided tour is $10 per person, with a $1 discount for students, seniors and military.
“We have a lot of objects at the Baldwin that sit in storage most of time,” said Kamela Harrington, lead attendant at the Baldwin. “This is a chance for some of these items to be seen by at least a few people.”
Numerous pieces of spare furniture are stacked in one room that usually remains closed. Other rooms hold vintage garments, hats and accessories that normally remain in storage.
The Baldwin building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and became a public museum in 1978.
The Baldwin Hotel Museum at 31 Main Street is open for regular tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday during the summer.
