1. Peters & DeWitt Building Marker
Inscription. 330 Two buildings rested on this site in the 1850s, one a brewery and the other a bakery that advertised 12 loaves of bread of $1.00. Fire broke out in the bakery in 1864 destroying all of its contents and much of the surrounding structures. The brewery, however, reopened a week later. Other businesses, including a photographic studio, opened and closed until 1897 when Godfrey Peters and Robert DeWitt constructed a new two-story Richardsonian Romanesque-inspired brick and stone building on that lot. DeWitt’s Bee Hive grocery store moved in the downstairs corner while the upper story served the Knights of Pythias lodge and several dentists’ parlors. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks bought the building in 1960.
 
Erected by City of Yreka.
