Inscription.  Built in 1880, 204 South Royal Street was originally the site of the Concordia Hotel. Commissioned by Jacob Borhaus, the Concordia incorporated every modern convenience. The original hotel entrance was located on Royal Street. A two story wing fronted on Prince street and extended eastward. In 1902, the hotel was purchased by the Elks Lodge. At the time of purchase, the ballroom on the second level was used as a bowling alley. The bowling alley was converted into lodge rooms. The first floor was operated as a saloon and a restaurant.
