California State Historic Landmark 880
#880 Fischer-Hanlon House
In 1849, Joseph Fischer, a Swiss immigrant, came to
Benicia. After joining a butcher partnership, Fischer purchased this
lot on July 1, 1858. The house, reputed to be an old hotel was
relocated here. The converted building is an outstanding example of
East Coast Federalist styling, which illustrated architectural diffusion
during the gold rush.
135 W G St, Benicia.
