Significance: Like the Masonic Lodge, the land upon which the Schumpf and Miller stores stand was once a part of the Eldorado Saloon lot. In 1863, Dr. Riddle advertised his offices on the south side of California Street one door east of the Eldorado Saloon. On the 1868 map, the buildings behind the saloon itself are shown as a bakery, bootblack, and grocery -- the bootblack could have been "Sam," who advertised "Boots Polished Artistically!" The site was claimed by both W.A. and Julia Owen and by Patrick McMannus. In 1872, when the Owens sold their interest to James Drum, the lot was described as a fifty-by-twenty-five-foot parcel including "the Store House now occupied by the said Drum on California Street." Two years later, Drum sold his interest to Alexander Martin, --who also acquired McMannus' interest in the lot, thus securing a clear title to the land. Martin had been a blacksmith, whose shop was originally located on California Street behind the Eldorado Saloon. By 1863, he had moved to a larger building on the northeast corner of California and Fourth Streets; the shops on the block of California Street between Oregon and Third Streets had in the meantime become devoted to trade rather than industrial activities.
