Main House

1899–1900, Alfonso Pasquale
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

Built as a hotel for the stage station, this structure is now used as a single-family dwelling. Measuring 74 by 25 feet, it originally contained forty-eight 8-foot-by-5-foot rooms for travelers. Later owners reconfigured the interior space, creating fewer, larger rooms to accommodate a twentieth-century family. Italian stonecutters quarried the granite for the basement in Paradise Valley.
