This site at the lower end of Boston Ravine on the old main road from Grass Valley to Auburn has been the location of a public house since 1851. Charles Behrisch was the owner from 1851 to 1885. Ownership changed hands many times through the years. Purchased by Dominic Pajnich on August 1, 1933, and was burned in 1934. Replaced with a 14-room hotel, named Empire Inn. Upstairs closed off in 1964, but remains a popular food and beverage stop today.
