Regarding Wells Fargo & Co. Express and Banking Office. From The Jackson Main Street walking Tour Brochure:
“This edifice may have a complex. Someone decided once it was the tallest three-story building in captivity though inside it seems like there are five stories or levels. The lodge in 1904 added a story atop the old Union House Hotel. You can see the clear outlines of the 2-story hotel, and the 3rd story which arises from half of it. From circa 1870 until 1919, Wells Fargo & Express was here."
