Dates of existence


The Springer family, Gotthold, Gotthold Junior, Antoinette and Justine, were the proprietors of "The Springer Hotel" in Edmonton, ALberta. Antoinette and Gotthold Springer began their business in 1911 with "Springer's Home Apartments", a bedsit residence, located on 105 Street just north of Jasper Avenue. The residence was well known and frequented by the majority of theatrical artists who came to town for one week engagements at the Strand Theatre, which was known then as the Pantages Theatre. The Springer's residence was admired for its comfort, hospitality and excellent cuisine. The name of the establishment was changed to "Springer House" sometime between 1919 and 1923. In 1925 the name changed again to "The Springer Hotel" which it was known as until it closed in 1944.
