"Then: Historic City Hall, the Spanish-style building at Third and F streets in downtown Davis, was constructed in 1938. During a special ceremony on April 30, the granite cornerstone was laid with a list of the day's participants and events sealed inside.
"The building's formal dedication followed on Aug. 31. The north wing, which housed the city's Fire Department, was dedicated on Sept. 17 of that year.
"As the city grew, the fire department eventually moved to new headquarters in 1966 and the area was converted to Police Department offices. In the early 1980s, city offices moved into the old high school at 23 Russell Blvd. In spring 2001, the Police Department moved into its new building on Fifth Street.
"Since then, Historic City Hall has been used by a few short-term tenants, including the grant-funded Davis Energy Efficiency Project, a haunted house, the Halloween Headquarters costume store and a temporary display of artwork from the Pence Gallery.
"Now: Bistro 33 Davis, a restaurant and banquet hall, is set to open in the newly remodeled building by the middle of this month...."

- Ruggles Family History – Recollections
of A Busy Life, written by Eli
Fayette Ruggles circa 1904. (Scroll down to the
Ruggles' entries/links.) The
book includes a trip to California to visit relatives
in the early 1900s. Eli F. Ruggles was the brother
of Fernando Cortez (F.C.) Ruggles of Woodland and
Lyman B. Ruggles of Woodland, Hanford, and Traver.
F.C. Ruggles, his wife, Leanna (Kinkle) Ruggles,
and family; Lyman B. Ruggles, his wife Martha Ann
(Dexter) Ruggles, and his family; and their cousin
Joel Jackson arrived in California in Placerville
circa 1849 where they mined gold for about a year.
The Ruggles families moved on to Yolo County where
they both purchased farmland near Woodland. (Lyman
B. Ruggles was the father of John D. Ruggles and
Charles L. Ruggles who robbed the Wells Fargo stagecoach
between the towns of Shasta and Weaverville in the
early 1880s. They were eventually hung in Redding
by vigilantes.) (This
book was transcribed by Peggy B. Perazzo, descendant
of F. C. and Leanna (Kinkle) Ruggles and is presented
on the California
Genealogy and History Archives web site.)
- Stagecoach robbered by John & Charles
Ruggles east of the town of Shasta in 1892: On
May 14, 1892, John and Charles Ruggles, sons
of Lyman B. and Martha Ann (Dexter) Ruggles,*
held up the stagecoach between the towns of Shasta
and Weaverville, California. During the holdup,
stagecoach robber Charles Ruggles; stage
coach driver, John Boyce; and passenger George
Suhr were shot. After these shootings occurred,
the other stage coach robber, John Ruggles,
shot Amos Buchanan Montgomery, the Wells Fargo
messenger. John left his brother, Charles,
at the scene taking the contents of the express
box. John Ruggles later stated that he thought
Charles would die. John Ruggles was eventually
apprehended in the town of Woodland in Yolo
County, where his family once lived. Eventually,
Charles Ruggles, who survived,
and his brother John were hung in the town
of Redding by a mob after breaking John and
Charles out of the Redding jail at night. (In
the near future, I will present more of their
story here. Below is a photograph of John Ruggles
along with his Wells Fargo Express Co. wanted
B. Perazzo (* Lyman and Martha Ann Ruggles and their
family lived in Woodland, until they moved
first to Hanford in Kings County and then to Traver
in Tulare County, California. Other parts of the Ruggles
family (including my maternal second great grandfather,
Fernando C. Ruggles) remained in Woodland, Yolo County.
