Significance: Booth & Co., a wholesale grocery business, was begun by Newton Booth in 1850 and became one of Sacramento's most successful pioneer business enterprises. The northern portion of this building, 1015-17 Front St., now demolished, was the original site of the Booth Co. on Front St. since 1865 and the residence of Booth from 1866-92 while he was governor (1871-75) and U.S. Senator (187581). It is uncertain when the building at 1019-21 was built, but the site was acquired by Booth & Co. in 1873. Booth & Co. occupied 1019 from 1879 to 1893, while 1021 was rented to George W. Chesley, wholesale grocer, until 1891.
