Circa: 1890In 1888, blacksmith, Joseph Treshil, bought the property from Drury Bailey holder of homestead patent (signed by Pres. Grover Cleveland). The building, with walls two feet thick made of shist & adobe, served as a blacksmith shop. Peter Mayrhoffer, in 1891, leased & used it as a brewery. In 1899 a "smithy" Christian Grosskopf bought & returned it to a blacksmith shop. He died in 1941. Restoration of the crumbling ruins began in late 1940's by the Julian Women's Club & local civic groups. The museum opened to the public in 1952.
