GREEN RIVER — According to a press release issued by GRoWYO, LLC (Green River Opportunities Wyoming), the Tomahawk Hotel has changed hands.
The press release announced that the organization is excited to announce its recent acquisition of Green River’s historic Tomahawk Hotel. This landmark building was previously owned and managed through the private non-profit entity, Green River Futures, Inc.
GRoWYO, LLC purchased the Tomahawk March 31, 2017, and plans to develop the building into the next phase of its storied life. As a prominent fixture of downtown Green River since its opening in 1921, the Tomahawk has played an important role in the growth of Green River. Recent management by Futures, Inc. helped begin the transformation of rebuilding downtown, and GRoWYO’s focus will continue that path. According to Mike Frink, owner of Sweetwater Trophies downtown, “I have always believed that the Tomahawk is an enormous asset to our community, and I am glad to see private investment and local people who have a passion for Green River stay here to develop and help shape not only our downtown but Green River too.”
GRoWYO’s initial focus over the next few months will be installing a fire suppression system and an elevator which will allow for future build-out and occupancy of all floors. In order to provide opportunities for new and existing businesses, GRoWYO plans to create viable mixed-use spaces, making the Tomahawk once again a vibrant and important part of our community.
GRoWYO is a new company of private investors with local ties focused on fostering local and state economic growth through property development. For rental information, please call 307-875-3969 or the upcoming website: www.gro-wyo.com.
