Hotel Corner (since 1886)

On this corner lot in 1886, David ‘Doc’ Taylor built a store, with a restaurant on the east side and a two-story house for his family on the west.  When these buildings burned, he built the two-story Taylor Hotel on the lot, which he sold in 1903 to Ronnei and Nelson.  They changed the name to Hotel Fall City and added a saloon.  The new owners died in the flu epidemic of 1919.  Lars Johansen bought the building and changed the name to Fall City Hotel; however, it burned to the ground in 1925.  Lars built a new Fall City Hotel on the site, which he moved to the back of the lot in 1929 when the road was widened.  This building has continuously been in use since then and today houses El Caporal Restaurant.
