Sacramento in Sacramento County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Site of a two story brick building built for Robert H. Vance of San Francisco in 1853. One of five brick structures erected that year, it was first occupied as a store. Almost coincident with the founding of Camp Union in 1861, it was taken over by Martin Arenz for a brewery and operated until after 1880. It ended up as a rental hall and was razed in 1952, but for ninety years was called The Sutterville Brewery. It was Sutterville's last remaining building.
Erected 1983 by The Ancient and Honorable Order of E. Clampus Vitus, New Helvetia Chapter No. 5, August 6, 1983.
