Bovill Hotel

In 1903, Hugh Bovill, the town’s founder, built this hotel as a lodge and wayside to board the multitude of sportsmen and visitors into the area. Two years later, he built a store on the south side of the hotel. In 1907 he built a lean-to on the south side of the store to house the town’s first post office. Later, he combined the two buildings by building several rooms, a dining room, and a large kitchen making this hotel one of the largest in the area. The room was needed to accommodate the large number of visitors, timber cruisers, and sportsmen. Hugh Bovill even hired a guide and pack train to give visitors a tour into the woods.

Bovill Opera House

Believed to have been built in the first decade of the 20th century, the Bovill Opera House served for five decades as the entertainment and social center for the town of Bovill and its surrounding communities. Although used primarily as a “moving picture hall,” the Bovill Opera House hosted dances, performances, as well as public hearings and gatherings. In the 1930s the upstairs was transformed into a miniature golf course and later used as a roller skating-rink. While there is a metal sign readings “Bovill Historical Museum” it was apparently never used as a museum on a consistent basis. The building is no longer open to the public.

Perkins House Museum/Whitman County Historical

James Allen Perkins came to the area in 1870, when he was 29 years old. He and Thomas Smith traveled from Waitsburg to set up a sawmill at the suggestion of Anderson Cox, who speculated that the valley along the South Fork of the Palouse might make a fine location for a new settlement. They proceeded to build a log cabin with timber hauled from Walla Walla. Both Smith and Perkins staked out property. The two men split the valley, Perkins taking the northern part. He purchased a pre-emption on 160 acres at $2.50/acre. The line separating the two parcels ran east to west and later became Last Street.
