1. Duarte's Tavern Marker
Inscription. In the 1890ís Pescadero was known as a resort town boasting two hotels and two saloons. Now one hundred years later, one saloon still operates. Duarteís Tavern is run by the third and fourth generation of the Duarte family.

Back in the 1890ís, Frank Duarte brought a barrel of whiskey from Santa Cruz and set up the bar. The price was ten cents for one whiskey, two bits for three. Business thrived until Prohibition hit. In 1934, Duarteís reopened and expanded with the restaurant. Although the original building burned down in 1926, the bar was saved and is still in use today.
