Our Story

The building that Farwood Bar & Grill occupies today was reportedly built in 1916 as a gentleman’s bar called the Richelieu. It was a very popular social venue for the town’s businessmen to quench their thirst and conduct business. The safe that is restored and displayed in Farwood was used to hold merchants’ money on weekends to be transferred to the bank on Monday. There is a commonly told story that there was a circumstance when the old Bank of America was not able to open their safe, so the money from the safe at the Richelieu was used to enable the bank to open and do business until the safe problem was solved.

The history of the beautifully carved oak bar in Farwood is well known to area residents. It was made in England, shipped around Cape Horn at the south end of South America, and functioned as a bar in San Francisco for an unknown number of years. In 1916, it was barged up the Sacramento River to be installed in the Richelieu and has remained there ever since.
