HISTORYThe Arrowhead Hotel was owned by Warren & Mary Etta Lee Cox.
The Arrowhead Hotel grand reopening was held on September 15, 1927. There was a banquet, full orchestra, entertainment, and dance for $1.00. The Washington County News wrote:
"... It is three stories high, faced with vitrified brick of two colors... the front is all plate glass; floor is of rubber squares and rubber wainscoting is carried up 40 in. on the sides; all woodwork throughout is of gumwood, beautifully finished; Tiffany shades of blue and tan have been used in the paintwork; semi-columns on the sides of the lobby & dining room are each surmounted by a cherub; a broad stairway leads from the lobby up to the rooms above. There are 17 rooms on the first floor; upstairs, 14 with bath & toilet, the choicest room being the bridal suite. The upper floor is finished exactly the same as the second floor. Heavy velvet carpet covers halls, rooms & stairway & the furnishings of the rooms and draperies are all high grade... steam heat will be used & electric fixtures throughout are very fine... a skylight lights both upper floors... fire escapes are provided...rates are reasonable. The hotel is one of the best south of Salt Lake City & St. George is justly proud of it, which accounts for the Chamber of Commerce sponsoring the formal opening and inviting the public to attend."In later years, the Judd family ran the Hotel.
