311-313 W. Miner St.Built in 1854, this one-story "fireproof" brick building immediately became a general merchandise store that operated under several owners until 1865 when the Forest House Fruit and Cider Store opened for business, sharing space with the California/Oregon Stage Company. Later, A.E. Raynes bought the building and joined forces the C.H. Pyle to run a bookstore and the post office. The most notable 20th century business began in 1920 when the Pollock Brothers established a dry goods store at the site that lasted 35 years. A jewelry store, dry cleaning outfit, and stationary business followed making use of the building's spacious interiors for the purveyance if goods and services.
