Long Description:
John Nicholas Saloon and Beer Hall
Designed by prominent Arizona Architect james M. Creighton, this is the oldest standing fired-brick buildig in Florence. Soon after completion, French-born rancher-farmer John Nicholas moved his saloon to this building in 1889. Tradition has it that Nicholas' patrons were cooled by a steam-powered fan.
Fired-brick buildings became common in Florence after the first brickyard opened in 1886. Typical of the flat-roofed commercial style of architecture popular near the turn of the century, the building has a unique full basement and was originally unpainted.
