Inscription.  The village of Bloody Run, later named Everett, was planned by Michael Barndollar in 1785. Barndollar also built the Union Hotel at this site in 1808. It was known as one of the finest hotels in existence at that time. During the flood of 1936 considerable damage was done to the hotel when the water level went halfway up the first floor. Today, the building still stands on its original location. The Barndollar family also created a similar structure that can be found in Coffeyville, Kansas, named the "Barndollar Store."
