2. Weller Hardware, Pioneer Hall Building
#1, Native Daughters of the Golden West, was organized in the basement of the northerly half in September, 1886. A padlock inventor, W.C. Bussey bought these lots in 1855 and '56 and built two brick stores. The 1862 fire gutted one and damaged the other. Hardware merchant Charles Weller bought out Bussey and unified the facade.
