The Kaiser House was constructed by Michael Kaiser. Construction started in 1878 and was completed in 1881. The original use was a very famous and fine restaurant on the main floor and a hotel on the second floor. The basement was used as a billiard and card playing area. It was the place to stay in Philipsburg in its time. People would travel from afar just to stay at the grand Kaiser House, which rivaled even the finest hotels in Helena. Gambling was very popular and John Kaiser, being an honest and trusted dealer, often stayed up several days straight to deal poker.
The Kaiser House was a vital part of the City of Philipsburg, which was a thriving mining community in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
