WOLF CREEK, Ore. (AP) - The historic Wolf Creek Inn in southern Oregon will be closed for construction this season.

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department bought the place in 1975, and says a new climate control system will allow better management of temperature and humidity. The $400,000 project being paid for with Oregon Lottery profits will also include accessibility improvements to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The state, meanwhile, is also looking for a new concessionaire to operate the inn that’s located off Interstate 5 between Roseburg and Grants Pass.

The Wolf Creek Inn was built sometime between 1873 and 1880 and the oldest continuous hostelry in the state. The grounds which include picnic tables will stay open during construction.
