Inscription. Built in 1838 by Ezekial Tyner to house his store room and counting room where he acted as agent for canal trade, housing his family in the addition to the rear. He then purchased the land from David Mount in 1841. Thomas Tague acquired the property in 1856 and ran a Tavern until 1870 when Amos Martindale extended the building to the west and operated the Martindale Hotel until 1895. Through many owners a public dining room was maintained in this building for guests of the hotel, travelers by canal, stage, or train.
