Inscription.  
City of Berkeley Structure of Merit
designated in 1988
German immigrant George Hunrick built one of Berkeley’s many neighborhood groceries on this site when the north Berkeley hills were in an early stage of development. In those days before home refrigeration, customers gave their orders to the grocer in the morning for afternoon delivery by horse and wagon. In the early 1920s the business changed hands and, under various owners, continued in operation as the Rose Grocery until 1966. The structure later fell into disrepair. In 2005 Trachtenberg Architects developed the site, incorporating historic signage and artifacts from the original Mission Revival facade into the new project.
 
Erected 2005 by Berkeley Historical Plaque Project.
