#692 Hood House
This was the site of Rancho Los Guilucos (18,833 acres), granted in 1839 by Governor Juan Bautista Alvarado to John Wilson and his wife, Ramona Carrillo, sister-in-law of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. The house, constructed in 1858 by William Hood for his bride, Elisha Shaw of Sonoma, incorporates the original bricks fired on the property, and has been in continuous use. The property was purchased in 1943 by the California Department of Youth Authority for Los Guilucos School for Girls.
