Jim Nutty's Great Grandfather, George Weppler, owned all of these buildings plus a large home to the North which he built in the early 1900's. He operated the saloon and Jim's Grandfather, Fred Muller, and Grandmother, Elizabeth Muller, operated the hotel and restaurant. Jim's Mother was born in the bedroom upstairs on the right. He believes that at sometime there was a fire which partially destroyed the top part of the building on the right. Interesting is the sign out front stating a hotel rate of $1.00 per day. The second picture is how this looks today.
