Our History

A Historic Property With A Fiery Past...

The original building was erected in 1854 to house a tobacco shop. It was destroyed by fire the some year and was rebuilt. It was torn down in 1866 to enable the miners to mine the property for gold. It was later rebuilt and became the Kuse Saloon in 1881. The one-story wooden building was re-erected in 1920 as a replica of a previous structure that burned. The name changed to Columbia House in 1970, to Jenny Lind Restaurant in 2008 and to Bart's Black Skillet in 2010. In 2012 the proprietors at the time, changed the name back to Columbia House.

Unfortunately the building was then again destroyed by an arson fire on December 30, 2012 at approximately 6:20pm. The suspect, reportedly broke in through the front door and set fire to a Christmas tree. He was arrested and taken into custody shortly after the fire began. The flames quickly spread and the front half of the building was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived and worked quickly to contain the fire before it could spread to neighboring buildings. Fortunately, Angelo’s Hall and the kitchen survived the fire with only minor damage.

Under new ownership Columbia House Restaurant is now back in business, with the great home style cooking you have come to love. Stop in and say "Hi" and try some of our signature favorites!
