Significance: Built as wholesale and import house for four German immigrants who arrived on the brigantine "Lady Adams." Ballast brick said to have been used in structure. Only building to survive fire of 1852 undamaged. / A group of Germans arrived in California in 1849 on the ship "Lady Adams" and started a wholesale business under that name. This building was erected in 1852 at a cost of $29,000, and is one of the few that survived the fire of 1852. It was raised to its present level in 1865. The building was occupied by Fogus & Coghill in 1861 and by Mebius & Co. in 1868. In recent years it has been used as a lodging house. It is registered as California Historical Landmarn No. 603. Julius Fiedler was the building architect.
