1. A. Hatt Buildings 1884 & 1886 Plaque
Inscription.  These buildings were constructed alongside the Embarcadero de Napa by Captain Albert Hatt, a seafarer who came to California in 1864. The building was used as a warehouse and for sale of merchandise. The second floor housed a roller rink. The 1886 building was designated a U.S. Government bonded warehouse for the storage of spirits and wines. The second floor contains Hatt Hall, a meeting place for secret societies and later used as a National Guard Armory and for social events.

In 1912 the Keig family converted the complex into the Napa Mill, a regional granary, mill and purveyor of agricultural supplies. Restoration began in 1995 for the Napa River Inn and Hatt Market.
