About Fort Mulligan's

The Famechon Building

formerly known as The French Store & Circle Bar from 1855 to 2000.

The Famechon Building was built in 1855 Julius Famechron and his business partner, Augustus Gaillard. They built the limestone buliding on Bluff Street from materials recycled from the 2nd Fort Crawford and was referred to as the French Store. Over the years, the building has been the home to the Circle Bar since the mid 1930s. In 2000, Mike and Trisha Hager opened Fort Mulligan's Grill Pub in this landmark building.

The building has many historic features including the tin ceiling and exposed limestone walls which are 23 inches thick. A window with a steel shutter in the back of the pub are original.

The hardwood, gym flooring in the bar and the marble dividers in the bathrooms were recycled from B.A. Kennedy School. The lumber work in the front is from a Dubuque ice house. The 1937 Heilmann Beer calendar hanging in the front of the restaurant was found in one of the walls during remodeling.

For more than 40 years from 1844 - 1884, Julius Famechon was a fixture in the Prairie du Chien business community.

By 1849, Famechon was in business with another Frenchman 14 years his senior, Augustus Gaillard. They remained partners until Gaillard died in 1864. Famechon continued on his own for another 20 years. Most of their business was in dry goods and groceries.
