Interesting History

John Allyn constructed The Studio Building in 1865-66 after he obtained the land for $1,300 from Edmond Sanford, who was completing work on his building next door. Allyn was a dabbler in many trades and had quite a colorful background. He trained at Oberlin College and Lane Theological Seminary to become a Presbyterian minister but began a law practice instead. Allyn arrived in California in 1851 and intermittently practiced real estate, gold mining, and even dentistry.
