Seattle's oldest continuously-used restaurant retains most of its original interior. Its 30-foot bar was brought "around the horn" in a sailing vessel during the 1860s, and much Klondike gold passed across it during the 1890s. The restaurant was operated by the Schreiner family for 74 years. The building was restored in 1972.
