Over the last 20 years, the Old Sacramento Historic District has grown and matured into a well-recognized town within a city.
The combined Huntington, Hopkins & Company Hardware Store and Stanford Brothers Warehouse, which together comprise the "Big Four Building," and the adjacent Nathaniel Dingley Steam Coffee & Spice Mill building play important roles in showcasing Sacramento's early railroad and commercial heritage.
The 'Big Four Building' was constructed through the joint effort of California's railroad pioneers: Collis Huntington, Mark Hopkins, Leland Stanford and Charles Crocker, known as The Big Four. It was home to offices of these four people. The house was built in 1852, destroyed in 1963 (decorative elements and building materials were set aside for future use), and rebuilt in 1965 by using the original elements.
