Lot of two. NUMBERS 1 and 2 issued to the McCaughy Brothers and signed by the brothers. 1905. The store just closed a few years ago when it was known as the Bodega Country Store, But to locals, it will always be known as the McCaughy Brothers store. " James McCaughey bought the building shortly after he arrived from his native Canada in 1864. When James died, his Bodega-born sons, Walter and Howard, inherited the business, added a “Bros.” to the name and created a landmark....Howard was the storekeeper, the purveyor of everything from nuts and to groceries. He was, like his father before him, the postmaster, which brought everyone from miles around into his store every working day. He was also the go-to guy for everyday advice, the gadfly who hounded the county road department about mud and potholes, the acknowledged leader of the political and social life of the coast and, most surely, keeper of the history."
