Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Louis Krueger was born in Germany on August 23, 1841. He came to Montana in 1866 and settled permanently in Bozeman by 1873. He bought the Metropolitan Hotel shortly afterwards and operated it as the Laclede Hotel. In 1882 the manager of the hotel was identified as Philip Skehan, although Krueger owned the building at least through 1885. By 1889 the proprietor was identified as P. P. Worsham. The hotel ceased operation sometime after 1892, and Louis Krueger died on June 12, 1919.
