Inscription.  Solomon's Medicine Lodge Saloon was remodeled in 1875 and became the Centennial Hotel. This frame building was moved to the back of the lot by Robert S. and Lydian Smith Culbertson for living quarters, while a new two-story brick hotel was built in 1882 which they named the Pacific Hotel. In 1890 the name was changed to the Culbertson House. The hotel had ten rooms upstairs, a saloon and a spacious lobby and dining room.
In 1867 Robert came to work for the I.G. Baker Co. in Fort Benton. He was the nephew of Alexander Culbertson, the founder of Fort Benton. The Culbertson House remained in family hands until 1945. After many years and many owners, it has been returned to its original beauty of the 1880's
