The JnR Hotel legacy began more than a hundred years ago on May 18, 1909 when Godlier and Silvia Coffman opened their newly built Coffman Hotel. For eighty plus years, the hotel has had six different names and six owners. The restaurant, bar, bakery and barbershop are long gone, but the stream running under the south end of the building is still here lulling folks to sleep.

Cedarville was settled in 1867 with the establishment of a trading post (the building is in the park – Historical Marker #14). By 1880, there were 220 people settling here.

Even Magpies like to eat squirrels. Cedarville sports other things beside squirrels and historic buildings. Obsidian, petroglyphs, wild horses and antelope are just a sample of the wonders here to see and enjoy.
