This building is listed on the National Register as the oldest commercial hand-hewn log building in continuous use in South Dakota.
Built in 1885 by the German immigrant Camillo Von Woehrman as a saloon and sleeping quarters; in 1890 he began publishing the Harney Peak Mining News, a weekly paper, which he published for over 30 years.
The building has survived 3 fires, two of which destroyed major portions of the town. The building had been stuccoed in the 1920's and had served as a garage and fixit shop until the last fire. Since interior restoration it has been: a fly-tying shop, a book and gun shop, a book, gift and stained glass shop.
