California State Historic Landmark 550
#550 Los Banos
Los Banos (The Baths) Del Padre Arroyo was a favorite bathing place for padres
from San Juan Bautista Mission, during their travels to the San Joaquin Valley. Visited as early
as 1805 by Spanish explorers, its name was changed to Los Banos Creek by later American
emigrants. The town of Los Banos was established at its present site in 1889, after the location
of the post office of Los Banos near the creek in 1874.
