   The construction of the Lorenz Hotel started in “1901” as the date appears on the side of the building. The bricks in the building were supplied from the Holt and Gregg Company of Anderson. Its grand opening was celebrated on October 18, 1902; its owner was Mrs. Susan Lorenz (1844-1925). Historic name of building: brick commercial, common name: hotel. When it opened to the public this hotel had a total of 132 rooms. Bathrooms were eventually installed in every room of the building. This building is located at 1509 Yuba Street in downtown Redding, and it also provides housing for senior citizens by the Shasta Housing Development Corp. They have owned the building since 1995.
