When this marker was erected in 1976 The Cottage was still in business at the corner of San Felipe and Wright Roads. The Cottage has since closed and the building has been moved to the grounds of the San Benito Historical Park, approximately 2 miles south of Tres Pinos off of Highway 25, and has been restored.
 
Also see . . .  San Benito Historical Society. The Historic Park has a wonderful collection of restored local buildings from the area. (Submitted on January 19, 2013, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
