This building was the home of the Booth Company, a wholesale grocery business and its founder Newton Booth, lawyer, writer, lecturer, and politician. Booth served as State Senator 1862-1863, and lived here while Governor of California 1871-1875 and United States Senator 1875-1881. His Inaugural Ball as governor was held in a ballroom on the second floor. The platform on the roof of the building was used to signal ships approaching Sacramento in order to purchase the cargo before the ships arrived at the dock, thus getting a jump on his competitors.
