2. The Moraga Barn
The marker is visible here in the right side of the doorway. Although the marker indicates that the building is a bar, in 1995 the bar was closed and the building sat vacant for many years. A renovation of the building was completed in 2010, and as of 2011 there were plans for putting a restaurant in the building.
