—“Copeland Building” —Built in 1911, this two-story structure, often referred to as the "Copland Building". was the forth building to appear along Main Street. At one time a side door existed on First Street near the rear of the building. Except for the removal of this separate entrance and the addition of the brick facing to the first floor in the mid-1970's, it stands as originally built. A drug store and a notions counter occupied the corner building (397 Main) with a fountain and candy store in front. One had to pass through them to reach the post office in the rear. Mr. and Mrs. H.G. Copeland ran the entire operation. For a time, Mr. Copeland reactivated and published the Los Altos Star, the news organ of the Altos Land Company.
