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 illustrates architectural diffusion during the Gold Rush.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the Solano County Historical Society, September 9, 1976.
