It's like a hotel out of an old western movie. The Oasis Hotel was built in the summer of 1881 at the corner of 8th Ave. & 7th St. and cost $85,000. Today it would cost approximately $1,894,680.

In total it had 200 guest rooms with plumbing, steam heating, electric lights and supplied with water from its own artesian well in addition to Greeley Domestic water. The hotel had its own billiard parlor and steam laundry for guests.

The hotel fell on hard times and in 1906 was bought by D.A. Camfield for $25,000, which would have cost $635,275 by today's standards, and the name changed from Oasis to Camfield.

The building was razed in 1964.
