—“Eschenbruecher Hardware” —
After a few years William (commonly called "Billy") died. Lillian, his wife, and their young son, Roy, continued with the business for many years. The front of the hardware store has been altered, but it is believed that the original facade exists beneath the present store front.
The Eschenbruecher home, once located at 130 Second Street, was the first home in the downtown triangle. In 1985, this well preserved house was moved to Los Altos Hills, where it serves as the town's Heritage House.
