2. Goat Hill Tavern
After a shady beginning, a newspaper article reported that the new owner "plans changes and improvements" that will give the public a clean pool room where "the men and boys of the community may enjoy the game under pleasant conditions." Women were allowed to play in 1930. The parlor was destroyed in the 1933 earthquake. (Submitted on September 29, 2012, by Michael Kindig of Long Beach, California.)
