Lone Pine
The Dow Historic Hotel was built in the early 1920's primarily to house movie industry personnel who frequently came to the Owens Valley to film Westerns, including John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Clint Eastwood. Many early Westerns and the epic "Gunga Din" were filmed in the ancient Alabama Hills to the west of town. The hotel faces the beautiful, snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountain range and magnificent Mt. Whitney, which at 14,496 feet is the highest peak in the lower 48 States. Lone Pine is also the gateway to Death Valley National Park, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level. The Dow Villa Motel, adjacent to the Dow Historic Hotel, was built in three stages in the late 1950's and early 1960's to meet the growing demand for more rooms. The hotel boasts a refined, graceful air and still attracts many film and TV companies. The Dow property is all non-smoking and has been family-owned and operated since 1957.
