This charming commercial structure was built in 1889 by Sarah Knox-Goodrich on property left to her by her first husband, Dr. William Knox, using sandstone from the quarry owned by her second husband, Levi Goodrich. Both men were important San Jos? citizens: Knox, with his brother-in-law T. Ellard Beans, established San Jos?'s first bank; Goodrich was the architect of the Santa Clara County Courthouse. Sarah Knox-Goodrich, a strong advocate of women's right, organized San Jos?'s first Woman Suffrage Association in 1869. She died in 1903 and was buried between her two husbands in Oak Hill Cemetery.
