About the Building

Old Riff Raff Building - Hatcher and NossamanEdna and Elmer Hatcher built this Victorian style house in 1898.  The Hatcher family had large sheep holdings and were prominent in local business.  Dr. AJ Nossaman purchased the house after his house was destroyed in the great flood of 1911, which took out most of Hermosa St. and several bridges on the San Juan River.  He lived in the house until 1931.   In the late 1950s to 1960s, the building served as Lynch Mortuary.  The building has also housed a hair salon, post office, dance studio, flower shop, and a number of restaurants!  We like it best as a brewery!
