The Prince & Garibardi Store

The Prince & Garibardi Store was built in 1852 of dressed blocks of rhyolite tuff by B. R. Prince and G. Garibardi. The square, two-story stone building first housed their general merchandise store and was later improved in 1857 by the addition of living quarters on the second floor. The building was also the site of the Prince Undertaking Parlor. An early advertisement read in part: "I will give the service of my elegant plumed hearse free of charge with any coffin worth twenty dollars or more at my establishment. All facilities for embalming at hand."
