The fire of May 26th, 1881, destroyed the dwellings located here. In 1885, Mrs. Amelia Adamson built the Cochise House Hotel. That same year, Mrs. Adamson and Mrs. Mary Gee, a hotel guest, planted the rose bush in the hotel patio. The Rose bush had been sent to Mrs. Gee by a relative in Scotland. By 1909, the Cochise House was renamed as the Arcade Hotel and Annex. It was described as "iron clad adobe". In the 1920's, new owners, James and Ethel Macia, built the steel pipe and wood post trellis that supports the Rose Tree. In 1936 the Arcade was renamed the Rose Tree Inn in honor of the Rose Tree. The Inn was popular boarding house until it closed in 1953. In 1964 the Hotel was incorporated into the Rose Tree Museum, which remains today.
