Located just a block away from the old Central Pacific tracks, the Shone House was one of many hotels serving railroad traffic at the turn of the century. Today only two modest hotels from the period remain in the neighborhood (the other is the Martin Hotel at Melarkey and Railroad streets). Though damaged by fire in 1980, the building was fully restored later in that decade. The two-story, wood-frame hotel has a false front capped by a narrow cornice decorated with pairs of small brackets. Shiplap siding and a front porch enhance the building's frontier appearance.
