Lottie’s husband passed away in 1956, and she continued to
live in the house for 55 years. In October 1974, Lottie left to
live with her daughter, coincidentally on the same date she
had moved there when married on October 23, 1901.
Since her departure, the home has been bought by
individuals who have preserved its grand exterior. It has
been a crafts shop, almost a Vera’s Italian Restaurant, an
ice cream parlor, and today’s popular Pinole Creek Cafe.
Lottie’s first impression of Pinole in 1898 was an unfavorable
one. However, she came to accept and love the close-knit
community and the friends she made with early families such
as Fernandez, Collins, Barrett, Brandt, Ellerhorst, and Downer.
For those who knew Lottie, her day of departure was
undoubtedly a sad one. She had sold most of her treasured
belongings of a bygone era and watched them go out her big
front door — the same one she had entered 73 years earlier.
But Lottie retained the wonderful memories of everything
and everyone in her home until her passing in 1985 at the
grand age of 105. If a home forever keeps the mannerisms
of its occupants long after they have gone, the Pfeiffer house
still speaks of Lottie’s presence there. One can imagine her
small, delicate figure standing on her broad front steps with
a welcoming smile much as she had done on her wedding
day so long ago. She was a strong woman of her time and
an exceptional homemaker in so many ways. Her marriage
ushered in the new 20th century, and her love for husband
George and daughter Muriel still prevails within the walls
of the old home. If you chance to visit the Pfeiffer House,
you just might feel greeted by an unseen hostess of the
past escorting you to your dining pleasure in her parlor.res
between Pinole and Rodeo.
