A. F. SAUSSER
One of the most popular hotels on the main highway between Old Mexico and Canada is the Log Cabin Hotel at Weed, California, owned and operated by A. F. Sausser. This thirty-eight hostelry, conducted to satisfy the most fastidious tourist, and with reasonable rates, is considered the leading hotel in Weed and is well known to both the tourist and the commercial trade. As its name indicates, the exterior of the building is constructed of native logs and presents a most artistic appearance.
F. Sausser was born in the state of Kansas, and there acquired his education. In 1910 he came to California, first locating in Los Angeles, where he conducted a hotel and apartment house. Fifteen years later, in 1925, he sold his interests in that city and came to Weed, California, where he purchased the Log Cabin Hotel, which he has conducted most successfully to the present time. He also has an excellent restaurant and soda fountain in conjunction. Mr. Sausser is not only a popular hotel proprietor but is also well known in fraternal circles as a member of Ashland Lodge, No. 944, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
In early manhood Mr. Sausser married Martha E. Howell, of Texas, and they are the parents of three children, Bessie, Louisa and Richard, all of whom are married and maintain homes of their own.
