These three buildings are important to modern Greenwood. They are the two-story Guess Block, built in 1899 and now home to the Copper Eagle Cappuccino and Bakery. Next, the red-brick three-story building is the Greenwood Inn and Saloon, originally the Windsor Hotel, also built about 1899. It houses one of the longest operating pubs in BC, which has a 30 foot long antique bar and mirror. One door north is home to the Pacific Grill; which operate in the white three-story building built in 1907 as the Pacific Hotel. During the Second World War, this building served at the #1 Internment Building housing more than 200 Japanese-Canadians.
