Inscription. The Company-owned boardinghouse that stood here was leased and run by (China) Tom Joe at the turn of the century.

From here, China Joe moved to Ione to operate a boardinghouse of his own.

From 1905 until the mine and mill shut down in 1907, the company operated it with hired help. The cook's name was Francisco and the flunky's name Candido Mastraitua. they both were Spanish Basque.

The remains of the underground cellar are visible in the back part of this lot. Canned and perishable goods were stored in it. The coolness of this type of cellar depended on the depth of the covering overhead, the amount of natural moisture in the walls and the exact amount of ventilation. Entrance was from the west side directly from the cook shack.
