Inscription.  Built in 1885 by Richard Feeney and first known as the Feeney Hotel. The hotel catered to miners and stage coach travelers. The saloon houses the 1850s Empire Bar once housed in the Empire Hotel. This bar was brought around Cape Horn from England, then by horse and wagon to French Gulch. The main dining room and parlor with bedrooms were added later. The Feeney family owned and operated the hotel until it was sold in the late 1940s. The new owners changed the name to the French Gulch Hotel.
