1. Cold Storage Room Marker
Inscription. Peter Hoff’s butcher shop stood on this site. It was a wood-frame building built in 1855. The establishment, known for awhile as the City Meat Market, was destroyed by fire in 1878. The cavity in the hill side was a cold storage room. Snow was brought down from the mountains and used to keep meets cool. Each year, after the first frost the 10-foot by 14-foot dugout was used as a smokehouse for a month or so.
