Hendee Hotel

The Hendee Hotel is a historic hotel building in Cozad, Nebraska. It was built in 1879 for John J. Cozad, the founder of the city of Cozad.[2] One of his sons, Robert Henri, became a painter.[2] Cozad shot a man in 1882, and he sold the hotel to Stephen A. Hendee, who remained its owner until 1910.[2] From 1883 to 1885, it was rented to A. K. Maryott, whose son was painter Miles Maryott.[2] The building has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since March 21, 1979.[1]
