The Cottage Bar

The Cottage Bar is one of the historic buildings at the San Benito County Historical Park. According to the E Clampus Vitus placard on the building, this was the first saloon to serve steamed beer in the area. The building is over 130 years old.

It was originally located at Cottage Corners, which was the area about where San Felipe Road and Wright Road intersect. If memory serves me, it stood on the northwest corner, which is now occupied by many of the blue tanks of Dassel's Petroleum, Inc.  Prior to being moved to the historic village, Cottage Bar was last owned by the Dassel family.
