From the Jackson Historic Main Street Walking Tour Brochure:

"The restaurant is in two buildings, the large dining area in the two-story buildings, erected after the 1862 fire by Ingalls and Kay. The other part of the restaurant sits on part of the site of the pioneer saloon and restaurant probably established in January, 1849, by town founder Louis Tellier. He set up his tent beneath a live oak from which, 1851 to 1855, 10 men were lynched. The historic live oak, damaged by the 1862 fire, had to be cut down."
