Inscription.  For 80 years, the corner across the street was a hotel. From its opening in 1879, the Rogers Hotel did a brisk business, partly because it also served as a stagecoach stop. The hotel changed owners and names several times before it was razed for a bank.
 
Erected by Walnut Creek Historical Society. (Marker Number 134.)
