Transcription"Patterson moving Sheridan House"--Handwritten on front of photograph.
Biography/HistoryIn 1893 Edward G. Patterson leased the Sheridan House, a large, three-story frame hotel located on approximately the present site of the Burlington Northern Depot in Bismarck. The Sheridan was the unofficial political headquarters in Bismarck from the time the territorial capital was moved here in 1883. In 1900, in order to clear the site for the new depot, the Sheridan House was moved bodily to the southeast corner of Main and 5th Street, veneered with brick and used variously as an exposition building and Patterson-operated hotel (called the Northwest Hotel) until destroyed by fire in 1921.
