Talley Store and Woody Hotel
The Woody Hotel was built in 1909, in anticipation of the Thunder Mountain traffic through Sweet. Jamie Chilcott, daughter of early-day Pinehurst postmistress (Boise County) and Sweet historian, tells of continuous day-and-night travel on this route during the Thunder Mountain Rush. But Thunder Mountain did not live up to expections. Woody sold the hotel in the spring 1913 to a Mr. Kvoko and purchased land in Hagerman Valley. The old Woody Hotel stands to this day and the ground floor, which survived earlier fires, houses the Sweet Syringa Club.
