Shortly after the fire of August, 1857, this one-story brick structure was built by three Frenchmen; L. Claverie, Charles Meysan, and Victor Pinchard. After their partnership dissolved in 1861, Meysan owned the building until 1869. He sold it to Sun Lun Sing and it became known as the "The Old China Store". This formerly French section of town became a predominantly Chinese area. By the mid-1870s a Joss House and Chinese theater adjoined the Claverie Building.
