In 1870, the city marshal, H. C. Seaman, was called to the Wiggins House, a hotel/saloon located on this corner. The marshal intervened in an alteration between Mr. Wiggins who was the proprietor, a saloon girl, and a Texas cowboy. Nine shots were fired, and the marshal was fatally shot by the cowboy.


Later, the Springs Hotel occupied this site.
