History of Mark:
"In 1858, Kahmann sold the Pacific Hotel to Frederick Wohlgemuth from Hesse Kassel. Two years later, Wolhgemuth purchased a lot across the street where he built an even larger hotel rising three full stories and extending seven bays on both Front and Elm Streets. William Wolf from Wurtemburg was managing the hotel under his name in the early 1870s. A block east of the Wolf Hotel is the inn at 120 W. Front, erected c.1855 by Prussianborn August Roetger who also worked as a cabinetmaker." ~ NRHP Nomination Form
