—318 East Lake Street —
The first building on this site, known as the Lake Street House, was completed in 1877. Later it was called the Farmer's Home, catering to farmers and laborers. That building burned to the ground with three adjacent buildings in 1880. Renamed the National Hotel by Conrad Zoll, the present building was erected by a farmer, Francis X. Schluttenhofer, in 1881. From 1915 until 1949, J.F. and T.A. Bremmeyr operated here as the Franklin Hotel. A specialty gift shop called In The Woods was located here by Shirley Hill from the 1970s to 2001.
