J.H. Lavagnino Clothing Store

14

This 1870 western false front building originally housed J.H. Lavagnino’s Clothing Store and was used for wine storage during the early 20th century. The building has been a dwelling, a grocery store, a feed and grain store combined with a cigar store, a haberdashery, and a saloon.

It was originally a long narrow adobe until 1858 and housed a jewelry store owned by Mr. Chatlaine during the mid 1850’s.

This building is a one-story wood framed building with exterior clad with horizontal wood board siding. The building is covered by a moderately pitched front gabled roof partially fronted by a rectangular false front parapet and the recessed entry and the display windows appear to be early twentieth century alterations.

Mom & Pop’s Saloon moved from its location a block away and made the building it’s home for over 25 years. The saloon recently closed.
