The Fountain Inn Hotel    ca. 1900-1913
101-103 W. Main Street
This brick two-story building achieved its present form in the first decade of this century and it may incorporate within it part of the one-story Waite building that originally occupied this spot. The building we see today is a good example of the Twentieth Century Commercial style. Such buildings are wide and are generally simpler in design than their nineteenth century counterparts such as the I.O.O.F. building (8). Originally, two stores occupied the first story while the second story contained hotel rooms. The building is located within the Omro Downtown Historic District.
The Fountain Inn Hotel is located on westbound West Main Street / Wisconsin Highway 21, west of its intersection with South Webster Avenue / County Highway F, at or near 103 West Main Street, Omro, Wisconsin 54963.
