Fodor's Review

This adobe began its life in 1846 as a saloon and lodging house for sailors. Four years later stage curtains were fashioned from army blankets, and some U.S. officers staged plays to the light of whale oil lamps. As of this writing, the building is open only for private tours (call for times and fees), but you can stroll in the garden.
