I found a picture of the Julien Hotel in Hamburg, which was purchased in 1906 by Cyrus "Coon" Fisher.
The gentleman standing in front of the hotel is Thomas Huff, married to Laura Fisher, and brother-in-law to Cyrus. (Wendi Torres)

Stories related to Julien Hotel:
A Duck Story:
The question uppermost at the dinner tables of the Julien last Tuesday, as the guests read the menu for the meal, "duck with dressing" was who in this part of the country raises
such nice ducks and how does it come that the Julien proprietor is so fortunate as to be able to provide so many at one meal? Of course the matter could not be settled until mine host
Fisher gave the proper solution. Like a man proud of the privilege he explained that the evening before he went hunting and had the good fortune to get near a flock that were huddled
close together up on the wide waters and with one discharge of his gun, he killed and secured fourteen fine specimen of fat ducks, and his efficient cooks had prepared them for his guests.
The guests believed his statement sufficiently to relish the prepared "duck and dressing" all right.

A Runway Accident:
Mr. and Mrs. C.G. Fisher Badly Injured in One Saturday
C.G. and Mrs. Fisher of the Lindel Hotel met with a serious runaway accident late Saturday evening whileout riding in which they were seriously injured.
They had taken the team of Mr. Fisher's nephew, Charly, and gone for a drive about the city. As they were passing along Washington street just in front of Mrs. Clark's
residence a dog frightened the team causing it to start to run. In going over a crossing it threw them both out of the buggy. Mr. Fisher had two ribs broken and several
bruises about the head and face. Mrs. Fisher was hurt about the face and it was feared injured internally. They were taken home at once and given the proper attention
and we learn are getting along nicely. The buggy was overturned and considerably damaged before the team could be stopped. It is fortunate however it was not worse.
