The building on the left, constructed in 1876, housed a dry goods store and post office on the first floor and the Odd Fellows Lodge on the second. The center building, also from 1876, was Colonel Wyatt's Bank Building. In 1905, the first office of the Plumas National Forest Service Supervisor moved into the second story. The building to the right, built around 1905, housed the Capitol Saloon. The original back bar is still in use.

All three buildings, particularly the Odd Fellows, have been altered over the years.

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) is an altruistic fraternal organization derived from the similar English Oddfellows service organizations which came into being during the 1700s....Although in Britain the Odd Fellows tended to meet in pubs, in the U.S. the lodges often built their own facilities. Many of these are now on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places....
