Inscription.  R. Spence Hines, a pharmacist who made his money in the Tintic mines, constructed this building in 1885 as a drug store and saloon (The Palace) and rebuilt it to its present shape in 1890. Hines was a member of the Independent Order of Old Fellows (I.O.O.F.), the first fraternal order formed in Provo, an organization which utilized the second floor of this building during 1890-93. In 1893 the second floor was rebuilt to create a rooming house. The drug store continued in operation and eventually became known as Hedquist Drug Store, Ivan's Drug, Stone Drug, Sanitary Cafe, Cozy Cafe, and Provo Pharmacy. Restaurants, such as the Vienna Cafe, have operated in the former saloon area.
 
Erected 1998 by Division of State History.
