Inscription.  

Charles Lyon of Carbonateville built the first structure on this site some- time after 1884, and by 1893 he operated a restaurant and the post office here. In the early 1900s this became Ella Weltmer's stationery & books and ice cream parlor. Tony Tappero bought the old building from Ella in 1918 and replaced it with this current structure, which for nearly two decades served as the Sahd Brothers general store. In 1936 Tony & Catherine Tappero opened the Cerrillos Bar here, with their daughter Mary and her husband Leo Mora taking it over in 1977. Mary's daughter Kathy now runs the bar.
