Miner's Union Hall
The second floor housed union offices, a library, and a large hall with an 18ft. ceiling, wallpaper and a special maple “spring floor” for dancing. At the back was a stage. 500 folding chairs provided seating for concerts, operas and theatricals. The first floor was a recreation hall for miners, with billiards and card tables. On the third floor was a meeting room used by clubs and secret orders.
In the 1890s. buildings along Main Street included saloons, rooming houses and restaurants. Across the street from the Union Hall was the newspaper office, and in the gully below was Chinatown and the red light district.
