Geocache Description:

A cache in a busy, fun, historic urban location.

You are at some wonderfully renovated historic buildings which, remarkably, surround the oldest building in San Jose.

Founded in 1777, the Pueblo of San Jose was the oldest civil settlement in California.  The Peralta Adobe (1797) is the oldest remaining building from that settlement. 

Another of San Jose's most historic buildings can be found right across the street - an 1858 Victorian Mansion called The Fallon House. More information about both structures can be found here:

Cache is accessible, just outside the Market building 24/7.  Buildings will mess up your coords, so use your geosenses (and the hint). If you come during peak busy periods (Friday Farmer's Market, Shark's games or free music on the patio nights, for example) you will need to be crafty to avoid detection! On street metered & garage parking available. Street parking free on Sundays.

A 4 Musketeers unactiveated Micro Geocoin is included for the FTF. congrats to sweetpea1953 for the FTF!
