The building was built in 1894 at an original cost of $28,200. &nbsp;The funds for the construction did not come from the ever present Union Pacific Coal Company and Railroad, but from revenues collected in the issuing of liquor&nbsp;licenses. &nbsp;The building is built from native sandstone and boasts an impressive 14-foot foundation that was made necessary by the&nbsp;presence of "quicksand" at the site.
