This adobe structure, built by Don Francisco Avila, is considered the oldest existing house in Los Angeles. By modern standards the home is quite small, though at the time it was the largest in the area. Although it has been heavily restored, much of the original walls survive today. It now functions as a museum with the interior having been refurbished to include a four-post bed and other furniture from the era.
