Regarding Dresbach-Hunt-Boyer Mansion. William Dresbach emigrated from Prussia and was known by many as "Solano Bill." He was an early prominent merchant of Davisville, but moved on to San Francisco to attempt to become the next "Grain King" after the death of Isaac Friedlander. Dresbach was unsuccessful at cornering the market.
The Mansion is now used by the City of Davis.
