The Stonewall Inn or sometimes referred as Bonnie’s Stonewall Inn was originally built as stables in the mid 19th century. By 1930 it became a Tearoom for heterosexuals. The Stonewall Inn first closed in 1964 after 34 year’s of business as a Tearoom when the interior was destroyed by fire. It was restored by three mobsters in 1967 as a gay bathhouse and became the largest gay bar in the US. After the riots in 1969 it shortly closed. For twenty years the Stonewall ran as a Bagel Sandwich Shop, a Chinese Restaurant and shoe store before reopening in 1998 as simply Stonewall.
