Store clerk Henry Lowell Tilton (1828-1909) joined the Californian Gold Rush and returned to make his fortune in timber and real estate.
In 1881, he built this, the town's largest brick structure and the architectural template for Main Street's industrial era.
A mix of Victorian styles is evident in the cast iron moldings, textured surfaces and keystoned windows.
Tilton promoted concerts, and the vestibule of his Opera Block is a theater entrance.
Due to uncertain demand, the theater wing was never built.
Since 1972, attorney John B. Eames has continued the mix of retail, office and residential uses that Tilton intended.
