The History of The Eproson House


Ray and Ella (Giannini) Eproson moved to Twain Harte with their family in 1930. The family owned the Twain Harte Grocery (where 7-11 is now located). Ray became Twain Harte’s Postmaster and Fire Chief, and the Post Office was located in their store, which, for many years, was also their home. They began building their new home on (what is now) Twain Harte Drive during World War II. It was completed in 1947 and had five rooms. The Post Office was moved to the front part of what is now the bar. Ray and Ella’s bedroom was located behind the Post Office. The children’s bedrooms were located in what is now the dining room between the current bar and the new dining area near the fireplace.

Ray Eproson died in 1967, and Ella lived in the house until her death in 1972. In 1973 the house was sold to Mr. And Mrs. Warton who converted the home into a restaurant, “The Eproson House.” Dick Rachel took over the restaurant from the Wartons, and later sold it in 1975 (?) to Martha Scott, who owned the business until 1991. Martha added the new dining area on the west end of the building. The bar and restaurant became the social and business center of Twain Harte.

Since 1991, The Eproson House has had several owners and, for a short time, a different name. It is, once again, The Eproson House Restaurant. We welcome all of you past and present to our House. “ The Eproson House.” Enjoy!
