We began our story here in Fall of 2019…
But the story of the building goes back a bit further. This 2-story vernacular building was constructed in 1888 as the Mammoth Springs Hotel and Saloon.
The Mammoth Spring Hotel had its Grand Opening Feb. 9th, 1888. It was two years after the opening of Mammoth Spring by Milwaukee business interests. The builder & proprietor was Fred A. Hummel, with the hotel furnishing “Rooms & Spirits.” Hummel died Jan. 1897, the property continued to be a Hotel-Saloon until the beginning of “Prohibition.” During this time, it was changed to an Ice Cream Parlor known as “Annie Brown’s.” At the end of prohibition to the present the property has been some combination of Hotel, Saloon, or Restaurant.
