One of Elko's oldest saloons first opened in a tent in December of 1868 at this location. The building was completed in 1913 costing $50,000. The saloon featured tiled floors, metal ceiling, mahogany furniture and a mirrored back bar. With the upper floors later converted to a hotel the saloon remained an informal employment office for local ranchers. 1981 remodeling closed the saloon for the first time in 112 years. Through a donation by George Gund the building was purchased in 1992 by the Western Folklife Center who sponsors the Annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering and hosts many other events throughout the year.
