Geocache Description:

The Avila Adobe--The Oldest Existing House in Los Angeles

Built by Don Francisco Avila as his townhouse, it is the oldest existing house in Los Angeles. It also served as headquarters for Commodore Robert Stockton during the Mexican American War, and later as a boarding house and restaurant. It now houses a museum representing the lifestyle of Los Angeles in the 1840s.

This entire area is an interesting one. Please spend some time checking out some of the historic sites, and maybe even the tacky little shops. (Try some catus candy.)

To log this cache, you MUST visit it, find the plaque on the front of the building, and send me the dates. The sign commemorates Stockton. Please post photos of your visit, but not of the sign with the dates. Too many armchair "finds" have been posted for this cache.E-mail me the two dates on the plaque.

Additional Hints (No hints available.)



  • Avila AdobeThis is the entrance to the Adobe. The plaque can be seen from Olvera Street. You don't have to go inside, but it's an interesting location.
