In 1909 Dominique Bordagaray purchased six lots on 5th and "C' Streets and built row stores on them as Coalinga began to grow. The row stores included a French laundry, cigar shop, and liquor store, bicycle shop and confectionery shop.
The French laundry was destroyed by fire and was replaced with the Liberty Airdome Theatre. The open air theatre was later replaced with a J.C. Penney store and new Liberty Theatre with Audio Sound.
