Recently we had the opportunity to serve those who serve us. Our company was chosen to install Dish-TV for the ARMY hotel at FT. Hunter Liggett. The hotel located outside of Bradley California offers lodging for U.S. Army personnel and other who visit the base. The Fort is surrounded by mountains, nature and wildlife. The peaceful setting offers plenty for outdoor enthusiasts but is also relatively close to popular beaches and vibrant Bay Area cities such as San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. The IHG hotel is also right across the street from The Hacienda an historic site that now serves as a hotel in Monterey County, California. The building was completed in 1930 by William Randolph Hearst. He built the structure to serve as temporary housing for his employees and guests. It was a central headquarters for activities taking place on the surrounding land.
The lodge building, designed by architect Julia Morgan, replaced and expanded upon an earlier wooden structure known as the Milpitas Ranch House. That building was destroyed by fire in the 1920s.
The 1930 hotel has also been known as Milpitas Hacienda, Hacienda Guest Lodge and Milpitas Ranch House. The property was placed in the National Register of Historic Places on December 2, 1977.
The lodge includes a restaurant, lounge, cantina, offices, public assembly rooms, guest rooms, a swimming pool and a tennis court. Hearst sold the structure and its surrounding property to the United States Army in 1940 for use as a training facility.
We at John Whitford Communications are honored to serve the men and women of Ft Hunter Liggett and the U.S. ARMY.
