With the discovery of gold in California, the town around the Mission San Jose became the gateway and provision center for the "49er" on his way to the Southern Mines.

To meet these demands, the firm of Strauss and Co. was founded by S. Strauss, Leon Kerman and S. Bachman in an old adobe on this site. After a succession of partnerships with A. Lebrecht and brother Max Ehrman, Solomon Ehrman built this brick structure in 1894.

The Ehrman General Store served for years as the Wells Fargo Office.
