This old building has listened to the sounds of civilization passing it's door for 100 years. The sound of miner, horse and oxen, wagon and stagecoach, auto and plane have all contributed to this symphony of a century. This building has never been without tenant and was first opened by J.R. Morrison as a Wells Fargo Agency and general store in 1868.
