Inscription.  A large pentagon-shaped structure was built here in 1849. In 1850 it became the Rogerís Hotel, one of Colomaís first major hotels. Ownership changed hands several times until 1852 when it became known as Wintermantelís Miner's Hotel. A sign on the balcony advertised in three languages:
Minerís Hotel
Deutches Gasthaus
Pensionate Francaise

Wintermantel moved his Minerís Hotel further south on Main Street in 1861. The fate of the original structure here is unknown.
