Gonzales in Monterey County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Stag Saloon
(There are two markers mounted on the monument.)
Built in 1873, it is the oldest structure in Gonzales. It became a saloon in 1890 and has never strayed from such an honorable enterprise since that time.
It was right behind you.
Close your eyes and imagine sounds
From the past, swinging doors, the
Clink of glasses, a toast to someone.
