Inscription. This is one of the three rentals built near 3rd and "C" St. By F.L. Blanc, first resident preacher of Julian. This site still has the well drilled to provide running water for his mining tenants. They no longer had to carry it 2 blks up hill from the town well on Main St. His minister's pay of $50 a quarter was inadequate to raise a growing family of 8. In order to "make ends meet" he used his carpenter skills on many buildings around Julian, ran a lumber mill on the north Cuymaca Mts. and had a mercantile store on Main St.
