Long Description:
Sponsored by the Utah Department of Heritage and Arts, the National Register of Historic Places has a plaque near the entrance, and it provides some background:

Baxter Commercial

Cornelius Baxter purchased the property in 1893, constructing this building soon after. Baxter, an 1873 Scottish immigrant and coal miner, owned the 11-room Hawley House, a hotel just to the west (demolished). His daughter, Agnes Burns, operated a cafe in the building, one among numerous cafes housed here over the years. The building later housed a bike shop and a barber shop.
