E Clampus Vitus laid the corner stone July 4, 1871. August C. Busch, partner in the Young America Mine, entrepreneur extraordinaire built the structure using Sierra City bricks. The three story building housed the Wells Fargo Express, Western Union, ECV General Store and a residence. The third floor public hall was used by Balaam Lodge #107304, ECV for meetings. It was destroyed by fire in 1948. The Charles J. Winstead family lived here until Carlo Giuffre turned it into the Busch & Heringlake Country Inn in 1986.
