Long Description:
"Alonzo Green, Sonora mayor in 1852 and 1853, and James Lane were associated in the building of the City Hotel in 1852. Constructed of slate, adobe, and red brick, it is one of the oldest buildings in Sonora. In the 1860s, it was purchased by Olivier Bemis. The street level part of the hotel had a large sitting room, bar and restaurant, with rooms upstairs. In the early 1900s, the hotel ran a horse pulled bus daily to meet the trains for the convenience of prospective guests." (visit link)
