2. Sanguinetti Building From the South
the first story in 1869 after fires in 1862 and '69 destroyed wooden stores. Its second story went up in 1882 but only on the northerly part of the building. The rest is a false-front facade. A candy store was here for nigh 100 years. The Sanguinetti Building is bound northerly by a pedestrian walkway, historically Fletcher Alley, after Hugh Fletcher whose dwelling stood there in the 1850s.
