The apple packing plant built by F.A.

Hihn in the early 1890s is closer than ever to being moved to its brand new location just behind the Bay View Hotel. The inside of the barn has been gutted of all non-historic elements and the entire building is sitting on a temporary foundation of pallets. I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t nervous about the structure surviving the move.

The land was originally owned by Rafael Castro, who in 1833 was deeded the six680-acre Rancho Aptos land grant. Castro made it a tradition to gift the land to his kids as they married or matured … whichever came first.
