Regarding Miller's Saloon. The 2007 application (available online) to the Stanislaus County Planning Commission by the Knight's Ferry Ice Cream Parlor for permission to sell "ready-to-eat" food items, notes an additional historical use that was not mentioned on the marker - bordello. Surely an oversight on the part of the Clampers.
