1. The Sipple Building Marker
Inscription.  The original brick building was constructed in 1904 by the Sipple Brothers, merchants from Azusa. The lower floor was divided into four stores for groceries, dry goods, candy, and a soda fountain. The San Dimas Rooming House on the second floor had eight small apartments. In 1914, the San Dimas Post Office was re-located into the building and remained there until 1932. In 1998, the building was razed and replaced with a modern structure using similar architectural elements and faced with bricks from the original building. The city-owned 2nd floor provided apartment units for senior citizens.
 
Erected by San Dimas Historical Society.
