Long Description:
The plaque says, "The Garcia House was originally built in 1885 to house mine management. The house was later owned by the Garcias from 1920 to 1978. In the 1930's a bootleg still exploded upstairs causing the second floor to burn. In the late 1970's the downstairs was made into an art gallery and the building was briefly an ashram later, gourmet evening dining was served downstairs and Maude, the owner, lived upstairs. The home became a Bed and Breakfast in 1994."
