Inscription.  

The Cerrillos Town Company first sold this lot sometime before 1893, and a general store was built upon it. By 1898 a small house was situated on the river bank behind this store. For a time around 1902 this was a carpentry shop, and then by 1910 it was a general store again, this time owned by Rafael Granito. The building eventually passed to Rafael's son, Joe, becoming part of the Granito Block. J.P. McNulty, manager of the Tiffany mine, owned the house out back until it was lost in a flood in the late 1920s. This was Eckols & Heiden's Starlight Cabaret for a brief time in 1970. The old building has been extensively remodeled and is now an art studio.
