1. American House Hotel Marker
Inscription.  Located on this corner in 1853 was a sturdy, well proportioned 2-story hotel known as the American House. The proprietors, Marchant and Crocker, were proud of their hotel with its healthful location on “Piety Hill” opposite the Court H House. This hotel was family-orientated, orderly and quiet, with no gambling allowed. Surrounding the hotel were extensive grounds with orchards, gardens, and rows of ornamental trees. In the rear was an extensive stable and wagon yard for use of the quests.
 
Erected by Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park.
