About the Building


In 1906, entrepreneur James Flanagan had a dream to build a grand hotel on the corner of 3rd Avenue and 21st Street. The population had grown from 311 to 3,011 in the past five years! The Flanagan Hotel, designed by Walter W. LaChance opened in 1908, and on the northeast corner was a fancy rooftop called a turret or rotunda surrounded by a cupola. Sadly, it was removed in 1944.

The hotel has changed over its lifetime, but many of the original marble pediments, ornamental scrolls, crystal chandeliers, ornate moldings and friezes and intricate wrought-iron work remain today. The Saskatoon Club has columns, a popular architectural feature. You can learn more about Greek and Roman column styles here.

Take a look the beautiful mythological beast door handles!
