A plaque on the building reads:

The Store

Founded in 1852, this grocery store has been in continuous operation ever since, making it the oldest store of its kind in the State of California. It has survived several disastrous floods that struck this community. The old pot bellied stove at the rear of the store has served as a meeting place for town notables for years.
