Montijo Building, 1881

Historic Building 56 / Montijo Building, 1881

This one-story building with 12-inch thick walls was used as John Young's morgue from 1881 to 1885. Young was the County Coroner, and claimed embalming to be his specialty. The basement vault was surrounded by ropes used to lower caskets into the ground to keep them cool. In 1885, the undertaking rooms were removed, and the Gray and Co. furniture store took over. The Montijo family, locally known for their saddle shops, opened another at this site in 1892.
