One of the earliest businesses to use the ground floor was James I. Patten’s drug store. In 1887 the Fremont Clipper newspaper reported the owner carried “an immense stock of drugs, toilet articles and druggist sundries.” “An efficient pharmacist is at all times found in attendance and prescriptions carefully compounded.” (Submitted on July 18, 2016, by Barry Swackhamer of Brentwood, California.)
