The store was built in 1851 and opened for business in 1852 by the Dinkelspiel family, who had recently emigrated from Germany. The buildings were made of rhyolite tuff blocks from the Altaville Quarry. The small adjoining building originally used as a saddle shop. Later became the Wells Fargo Company's express office. The first Wells Fargo agent in Vallecito was L. Dinkelspiel and Co. It was one of the many express companies which handled mail in the Mother Lode prior to 1854, when the Post Office was established.
