The Wick Hotel was located on the second and third floors of the Kirkwood Building on the southwest corner of Seventh and Broadway. The building was built by Archibald B. Kirkwood, president of the Standard Mercantile Company & local mining businessman, on the site of his store which had burned down in 1911. The new building became known as the Kirkwood Building. The S. H. Kress Five & Dime Store occupied the first floor, opening October 4, 1912. The Wick Hotel, which occupied the second and third floors of the building, was opened around 1923 by Parson's businessman H. O. Wick. He managed the hotel until about 1928 when Mrs. Ida M. Kirkwood, widow of A. B. Kirkwood, took over management and it was renamed the Kirkwood Apartments.
