The major fire in Central City on May 21, 1874 nearly wiped out the commercial district of the city. The new building was completed by November 1st of the same year and B.F. Pease operated a dry goods store at the location for nearly 10 years. For a time there was a undertaking parlor situated on the property, but the longest residing business was the office of the Observer Publishing Co. which published the Gilpin County Observer newspaper. At the turn of century, Ignatz Meyer came into possession of the building and in 1901 he added a second story and had the main floor modernized. Ignatz's saloon became one of the principle businesses in the city until prohibition forced a change in the nature of the business, which became that of a pool hall. After being sold at tax sales twice in the 1930's, Henry Toll purchased the building in 1940. In 1948 the property returned to business of selling alcohol when it became Emmy Wilson's famous and infamous, Glory Hole Tavern.
Restoration completed March 1st, 1992
