2012 [what's left]:
The Gonstead Chiropractic Clinic and Karakahl Country Inn were designed by John Steinmann and built in 1964. The buildings are next door to one another. Clarence S. Gonstead owned both the clinic and the Karakahl Motor Hotel, as it was originally known. The motel was built mainly for the convenience of patients. There were 72 rooms, all on the ground floor. It fell into disrepair over the years. The restaurant and bar (top row of photos from 2007 above) closed in 2005. In 2007, most of the motel was demolished for a Walgreens. The Clinic remains intact and operating. The Karakahl Country Inn is still operating as well but very little of its original splendor remains. For more, see this website. [map]
