Inscription.  "The quartermaster depot building at the northwest corner of Eighth and Pine streets was among many others in Rolla built by the Union army for its supply apparatus. Sold after the war as government surplus, the quartermaster building became the Grant Hotel, shown here circa 1875. (upper left photo)

"Mr. and Mrs. Hiram V. Shaw purchased the original Grant Hotel on the northwest corner of Eighth and Pine streets in 1870 and replaced the frame building in 1876 with this brick edifice. The hotel, outbuildings and grounds ultimately encompassed the whole block." (lower right photo)
