Commercial Hotel

Archives 1.jpg

Local townsfolk posed outside the Commercial Hotel around 1880. Movers had relocated the building from the town of Liberty to the northeast corner of Fourth and C streets in Galt. When Obed Harvey convinced the railroad to lay track through his property, surveyors laid out a small town named Galt. That meant that Liberty had been bypassed, which resulted in several of its buildings moving into Galt, including this one. The Commercial Hotel burned down before the turn of the century, and the present building was built. The Coffee Shop Bakery is located in the current structure.
