The Commercial Hotel

(-as transcribed from page 544)

This building is situated at the corner of North Barstow and Wisconsin streets and is owned by Kopplin & Kuehl.

The building was erected in 1886 and opened as a hotel in the summer of that year under the name of the Frawley House. The house took this name from Thomas A. Frawley, one of the owners of the building and a prominent attorney. J. A. Pattee was the first landlord. There were frequent changes of landlords. H. Isaacson, Mat Caruthers and Peter Killeen ran the house at various times and in the order named. Then for several years the house was closed. Julius Kopplin and associates purchased the premises and again established a hotel under the name of the Commercial House. The house is well patronized and popular.
