A residence street, Primghar--reads the inscription. SE corner of Hayes Ave and 3rd St SE. It was built in the early 1880's by Frank Derby (??) and was, then, considered practically in the country. J.L.E. Peck purchased it when he and the family moved back to Primghar. He would have been living in it when the Hub cornerstone was laid. His daughter came up with the name for the Hotel.

The Montzheimer home, built in 1891, was considered (according to the paper) a modern bungalow. The Montzheimers lived in it their entire married life and celebrated their 50th anniversary in it by hosting a small gathering. The man on the porch has to be O.H. himself. It has some beautiful stained glass windows.**
