John Locke built the original Homestead Hotel as a "temperance house" in the six years between 1913 and 1919. In 1919, the Hotel was purchased by local businessman David M. Soole. In 1930 Mr. Soole built the Homestead restaurant and Tavern adding it to the existing Hotel in response to the Park's growth as an international travel destination and the increasing demand for a quality dining facility in Banff. The prominent location of the hotel and restaurant was convenient to both motor travelers and rail passengers arriving in Banff.
The restaurant (now Melissa's Missteak) is the only remaining portion of the original Homestead Hotel complex. The rustic log interior and stucco Tudor exterior remain true to the original design. The building remains a significant Banff social landmark.
