Monroe Cider Works983 viewsOriginally established in 1887 to produce carbonated temperance beverages, John W. Monroe's Fortuna Bottling Works found its niche six years later by converting the area's many grade apples into sparkling champagne cider. By helping the apple growers he made himself a rich man, exporting his product into Oregon and supplying wholesale houses as far south as San Francisco. The plant also produced carbonated vinegars, Weiland lager beer, ale and porter; also manufactured apple butter and pure cider vinegar. This building was located at the southeast corner of 12th and L Streets. By 1926 it had been replaced by a foundry and machine shop, and today the area used as the parking lot across from Goble's Fortuna Mortuary.

Newell & McIntyre Store968 viewsThis store was located on the east end of the Star Hotel, 11th and Main Streets. The original business, established in 1881, was called Greig & Ferrier, and was the Fortuna agents of Wells, Fargo & Company. Messrs. Newell, a five-year employee of the firm, and McIntyre, bookkeeper at the Springville Mill, assumed the business in September, 1895. McIntyre's old bosses, Swortzel and Williams, also owned the Fortuna Merchandising Company across the street. McIntyre was a native of Michigan and lived on Annie Street (O Street today, between 6th and 7th Streets)
