About the Tres Hom­bres Building

The build­ing that now is home to Tres Hom­bres is the old­est exist­ing struc­ture in what is now Down­town Chico, com­plet­ed in 1861 by the city’s founder, John Bid­well. When first opened, the two sto­ry struc­ture was the home of the first post office in what would become down­town Chico and was also John Bidwell’s office as well as the Bid­well Gen­er­al Store. In approx­i­mate­ly 1915, the build­ing was sold by Annie Bid­well to the Kil­patric fam­i­ly, who opened Kil­patric and Sons Gro­cer­t­e­ria, the first of its kind in this area, a mod­ern” gro­cery store. In the late 1930’s, the sec­ond sto­ry was removed due to fear of col­lapse from an earth­quake. The build­ing is still owned by the descen­dants of the Kil­patric family.
