Inscription. This former saloon, built in 1876, is one of the oldest commercial buildings in The Dalles. The First Street facade has pilasters of cast iron. In early days, many of the city’s commercial buildings displayed cast iron ornament. Today, the Baldwin Saloon is one of the few iron-fronted buildings remaining. The Baldwin brothers, James and John, were the original proprietors. Later uses of the building included a restaurant, steamboat office, grain warehouse, and coffin storage for a nearby mortuary.
 
Erected by City of The Dalles.
