The building turns 140 years old this year?! Wow.

I liked the "Saved by a Corset!" Story.

Although it’s uncertain if Cremer’s Hotel was a brothel on the side, we do know that when the infamous California bandido Tiburcio Vásquez came knocking, Margaret bravely protected her place of business as fiercely as a Madam protecting her harem . She refused service to the outlaw and his men, so Vasquez shot out all the windows. A stray bullet actually hit a woman at the hotel, but she was saved by her corset. Who knew those torturous undergarments could actually be useful!
