March Edness 2019: Day 16
Guessing has closed and the answer has been revealed.
This one tripped a lot of players up, but the answer is the Orcutt Trade Center. It houses several buildings so we accepted answers of 135, 127, or 125 W. Clark Ave in Orcutt. The two-story building was originally the Orcutt Hotel (subsequently called the Orcutt Trading Center and Pioneer Square) and was built around 1922. Currently, it houses a variety of businesses including retail sales and office space.
According to an article in the Orcutt Pioneer, the building was built by a Santa Cruz bootlegger Stephen Dal Porta in the face of prohibition, there was a complete hotel downstairs and a speakeasy upstairs.
