The Whitehouse Saloon
The Whitehouse Saloon was thought to first open as Whitehouse in the late "Teens" under the management of H.B. "Moses" Elder and his brother Emmett Elder. It was closed down by Prohibition in 1920 and operated as restaurant during that period. When Prohibition was repealed it was reopened as a Saloon and has operated as such except for a short period as an antique shop.
Dickinson's Saloon
Samuel K. Dickerson purchased this building in 1906 and operated as a saloon until sometime after 1915. While Sam was operating the saloon it was a lively place where he staged several "prize fights" and had the round by round bulletins of the famous "Gan-Nelson" fight held in Goldfield, Nevada telegraphed directly to the saloon. At times Dickerson operated his saloon out of the basement and leased out the upstairs. For many years the Fraternal Order of Eagles held their meetings here. In 1908 he seems to have taken to Marguerite Roberts place in town as some "anonymous" town folk asked the Board of Supervisors to shut down for running an immoral establishment.
