Long Description:
This barber pole resides in front of the Palace Barber Shop on historic W Miner St. There are numerous older buildings along Miner Street that contain historical markers that relate the history of each building. This barber shop has an older, wooden sign in the front window that reads:

Franco
American
Hotel Bldg.

1866-67

Leon Marniesse - Native of France
Prop. - Ran the Franco-American
Hotel on this site in 1853 or 55.

New Dining Rm. & Rms. above on
west side built.

1899
Chas. Bonhart - Prop.
Chas. Herzog, Jr. - Manager
Hotel served as office and station of Wells, Fargo - Bank
and Express Co. - 1862-1866.

I don't know how many years this barber shop has resided in the Franco American Hotel Building but it has a nice, vintage look and feel that complements the red building. This building is also the only building that contains trees in front along Miner Street.
