Gorden Hotel

Also known as:  Northern Hotel


Brown (First mayor Grand Forks) & Son were awarded the contract for furnishing the hardware of the new hotel yesterday.  No small amount of locks and trimmings will be necessary to complete this mammoth house and we fell assured the contract will receive speedy and satisfactory attention at the hands of Messrs. Brown.  (Grand Forks Daily Herald, Wednesday Evening, April 17, 1889, Volume XV, Number 140, Page 4)

The area wall of the new hotel is under way.  Soon now may we expect a completion externally at all events of this cate of beauty.  The next question that ariseth – who’ll run it?  (Grand Forks Daily Herald, Monday Evening, April 29, 1889, Volume XV, Number 150, Page 4)
The contract for equipping the new Gorden hotel with steam heating was let yesterday to a company in Minneapolis.  (Grand Forks Daily Herald, Thursday Evening, October 24, 1889, Volume XV, Number 302, Page 4)

We are informed that the Gorden will open on the 30th with a grand musical festival and dance.  (Grand Forks Daily Herald, Wednesday Evening, December 18, 1889, Volume XV, Number 348, Page 4)
Invitations have been issued for the banquet and dance to be given at the Gorden on Monday night next.  The affair promises to be grand and we have no doubt will be taken advantage of by the citizens of Grand Forks.  Hall’s orchestra of eight pieces will enliven the occasion with fine music.  Mr. Gorden desires to state that if anyone has been omitted in the matter of invitations it is entirely an oversight.  (Grand Forks Daily Herald, Thursday Evening, December 26, 1889, Volume XV, Number 355, Page 4)
