2. Tellier's St. Louis Saloon Building
Louis Tellier set up his first tent saloon on this site. Tellier called his bistros St. Louis House, Empire Saloon or Tellier's. A nearby sidewalk plaque memorializes Jackson's notorious tree from which ten men were hanged between 1851 and '55. The tree itself was so severely damaged in the great fire that townspeople had to take it down.
