Christmas at the Scotia Inn

According to a Palco historical timeline, in 1903 the Mowatoc Hotel was built on the same property as the inn. The hotel had 135 rooms and served as a residence for mill workers as well as an inn for stagecoach travelers between Ukiah and Eureka. Palco interim spokesperson Kathy Wigginton said that the Mowatoc Hotel burned down and was rebuilt in 1923, and renamed the Scotia Inn.
