The Athearn Hotel was designed by William Waters, and was completed in 1891.  At the time, the Oshkosh gem was one of the largest hotels in Wisconsin.  It was demolished in 1964, and the debris from the demolition was used to enlarge the island that held the Pioneer Inn.  Michael McArthur of the Oshkosh Public Library fills in the gaps.
