Inscription.  In the 1850s, this was the site of The Home Journal newspaper office. From the 1860s to 1880s, various saloons were here. After a disastrous fire in 1884, William Russey constructed this building, where Grant's Café, City Café, and The Chuckwagon Restaurant operated continuously from the 1920s to 1988. The private dining room upstairs was a popular location for meetings of various organizations, including the Lions Club and Rotary Club. A significant historical year for this entry is 1885.
