Opened by Dr. Edwin Liebfried in September 1915, it was was a nice establishment for its time. It featured steam heating, hot and cold running water, and meals served in the dining room.

The building became a frat house in the 1960s and was eventually demolished in 1971. Soon after, Sambo's was built on the lot.
