102 W. Miner St.Jerome Churchill, packer, financier and entrepreneur raised a general merchandise store here in 1851. It was a tent. When several of these "temporary" structures continued to burn, Churchill put up a "fireproof" brick building in 1855. The devastating inferno of 1871, however, also devastated Mr. Churchill when his structure was destroyed, but he rebuilt once again and the building served many business endeavors through the years. When the State of California mandated the widening of Main Street in 1934, the building was leveled, but a new concrete structure was erected by N.T. Delean, a tailor, who operated a business next door. Later, a restaurant and several bars served the public in this building.
