Paperwork from 1951 which predates permit history seems to indicate the property has on record 6 legal non-conforming cottages and a main house. One or more of the cottages may date back to the 1880’s. There is some evidence pointing to the cottages being used to house the upper management for the narrow-gauge railway that ran through town; and even as a spill over from the hotel that burned down in Los Olivos.
