- 1892 -

Built in 1892 by Santiago McCoy and Modesto Estevan Adam for Adrian Barreda Ortiz, a native of Madrid, Spain, it is an example of an L-plan mercantile store. The architecture is a mix of Victorian and Border Brick style. The store operated by Mr. Ortiz was known as both Ortiz Grocery and La Madrilena (meaning "from Madrid"). The building was restored in 1987 by Rey and Ethel Cantu.
