Novato in Marin County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
819 Grant Avenue
This building was constructed in 1900 by Antone DeBorba, Sr., and it housed a barber shop. A 1913 map shows the building had an addition on its east side. The barber shop was moved to the new addition, leaving the billiards and saloon in the main building. The business continues to be owned by the DeBorba family as is one of the oldest family-owned businesses still in operation in Novato.
