Avila Adobe

Avila Adobe Review

Built as private home for cattle rancher Francisco Avila in 1818, this museum preserves seven of what were originally 18 rooms in the city's oldest standing residence. This graceful structure features 3-foot-thick walls made of adobe brick over cottonwood timbers, a traditional interior courtyard, and 1840s-era furnishings that bring to life an era when the city was still part of Mexico. The museum is open daily from 9 to 4.
