It was the discovery of gold that brought all sorts of folks to Jacksonville, including the Chinese to work the mines, and the Jews to bring necessary goods to sell to the miners. This is the J.A. Brunner and Brother building, the oldest surviving brick structure in town, built in 1855. It is known for its sturdiness during an Indian uprising when the building was used as a refuge for women and children.
