1890Frank De Luca, Italian immigrant, built this general store featuring fresh produce. A cold spring, struck in the excavation, spawned a cellar saloon. Julian voted dry in 1902 under local option law. The popular saloon thereafter sold only "cider, tonic and medicine." De Luca was accused, at the urging of the anti saloon league, of illegally selling "spiritous liquors." He was acquitted by sympathetic jurymen. He sold out and retired in 1912. This building has continuously housed a grocery store for more than 100 years.
