819 Grant AvenueAntone (Tony) V. DeBorba opened Deborba's Inn on Grant Avenue in 1906. When Prohibition forced him out of business, he leased a building at Grant and Highway 101 (now Redwood Blvd.) and opened "DeBorba's Stage Station," a favorite respite for motorists which included an ice cream parlor. Since he couldn't use his Grant Avenue building as a saloon, Tony turned it into a billiard parlor. Once Prohibition was repealed in 1933, he was right back "doing business at the old stand."
