Additional Details:
This picturesque old red brick building, the most beautiful early day structure in Columbia, was erected in 1857, for Bill Daegener. He became agent for the company when it opened its office in the Fallon House. He held this office until 1872. Columbia was a fabulous camp in its day and produced in the neighborhood of $85,000,000 in gold, over half of which was weighed on the scales in this building. The cast-iron balcony grill that adorns the second story was brought from Troy, N.Y. by mule team. Columbia once enjoyed a population of over 15,000.
