California State Historic Landmark 308
#308 Casa Covarrubias
Built by indian labor in 1817 for Don Domingo Carrillo, whose daughter married
Don Jose Maria Covarrubias in 1838. Descendants of these families, many of them leaders in public
affairs, occupied this house for over a century. Don Jose Maria was the first federal elector from
California in 1852.
John R. Southworth moved and rebuilt the "historic adobe" here in 1924 as part of a civic program
of historic preservation. Los Adobes de Los Rancheros acquired the property in 1938 as headquarters
for Los Rancheros Visitadores and for the use and enjoyment of the people.
