Inscription. Here in 1848 was built the first two story adobe hotel in California. Originally a boarding house, the building was converted into a small hotel to accommodate visitors at the mining settlement. Destroyed by fire in 1874 and later rebuilt.

After the departure of the population, the building stood vacant for many years until it was remodeled in 1934 to serve as a restaurant.

Karl M. & Helen V. Resch named their new restaurant, “Cafe del Rio,” and continued in business until they sold it in 1968.
