About the Book

Over 100 years of life in a Hotel. In 1900 The Chamberlins moved to “Cody”, a town with few buildings and very few people. Agnes Chamberlin started a boarding house in 1904, later expanded into Hotel Chamberlin. Her ideas filled with interesting challenges, were usually quite successful. She gave her Homestead land to the City in 1935 to enlarge the Airport. In 1939 Agnes sold to George and Hattie Edwards. It was renamed Pawnee Hotel in 1941. In 1974 Edwards sold to Jo Jean DeHony. Jo Jean remodeled and operated the Pawnee Hotel for more than 31 years and sold it in 2005.


About the Author

I Jo Jean Thomas DeHony the second of three girls raised by loving parents in a small town at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains. ( Hyattville, Wyoming}. Population near 100 people. A person with imagination , always thinking of something new. Remodeling, art, painting, sculpting, and now a book. The love of animals led me to raising and training Tennessee Walker horses for sale. I worked for Husky Oil Company for 25 years, and during that time I purchased the Pawnee Hotel. I wrote a few short stories for the enjoyment of the family and friends but I always thought I wanted to publish a book. In 2010 I started a book with the main subject being my old hotel, dated from 1897 to 2005. My ideas became a reality.
