Inscription. This building was one of the first brick buildings erected in West Bend. It replaced an original structure built in 1852 and destroyed by fire on January 1, 1864 and it was re-opened on October 15, 1864 as a headquarters for travelers along the “Old Stage Coach Road” serving coach and ox-cart alike. In 1874, at a gala banquet, influential citizens of Washington County founded the Old Settlers Club (now Washington County Historical Society). The annual meetings, held here on Washington’s birthday for many years, became one of the principal social events of the year.
 
Erected 1978 by Washington County Landmarks Commission.
