Significance: The 2-story wood framed boarding house was completed in 1907 to house and feed railroad employees. Documentary evidence indicates that the first floor had rooms for the proprietor and his wife and one servant, a storeroom, kitchen, dining room, and a small living room. Upstairs was a dormitory and small bedroom for railroad executives. The building collapsed in the 1960s. The drawings are taken from remains preserved on the site, and reveal a balloon-frame structure, with a wood truss supporting a metal roof. There was a 2-hole privy behind the building.
