105 Main Street
This two-story Classical Revival house is located on California
Highway 1 just south of Point Arena's small commercial district.
It was built at the beginning of the 19th Century as an addition
to a house belonging to the owner of an adjacent brewery.
A wooden bridge spans Point Area Creek which flows between the building
and the street.
The Italian Hotel was located in Point Arena's small
red-light district and was operated as a brothel. The red-district
remained in business until after World War II, but the Italian
Hotel is the only building that survived this period.
