Built in 1905 in the small bustling city of Biggs, California this full scale modern hotel of its time stood as a cornerstone of the local community. Hosting over 35 rooms with hot & cold water, electricity and call bells for it's patrons, it was the place to stay for both short and long term visits.

Over the years the building hosted many events from suffragists and state officials in the 1900's, to famous crooners and actors hunting duck in our area through the 1950's and 1960's. The 70's and 80's brought back live music and entertainment to the bar. By the 90's the doors closed and weren't opened again until 2016 when the Shadd's purchased it, with it's boarded up windows and crumbling plaster. 5 years later, after a lot of love and sweat equity The Colonia Building is open again for private events.
