Inscription. Frank Antonio De Luca, Italian immigrant, naturalized 1872 at Memphis, TN. and wife, Florence, created this small house, typical of Julian, in 1897 from a studless rough plank cabin built in 1893 by miner C.L. Barnett. De Luca came here in 1889, age 42, and became a leading merchant, grubstaker of gold miners and an astute trader in land. He, other businessmen and farmers organized the first apple day celebration Oct. 9, 1909. Childless Florence retired to San Diego when Frank died in 1925, age 77. She died there in 1945, age 90.
