Overview
More
Built in 1844, this is one of the last remaining two-story adobe structures still in existence in southern California, combining both Mexican and American architectural styles and building elements. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives.
