#936 Rios-Caledonia Adobe
This imposing building is an excellent example of California's Mexican era architecture. Using indian labor, Petronilo Rios built the two-story adobe about 1846 as his residence and headquarters for sheep and cattle operations. Named "Caledonia" in the 1860's, it served as a hotel and stagestop between Los Angeles and San Francisco until 1886. Restoration began in 1968 by the Friends of the Adobes.
