Avila Adobe

Olvera Street, Historic El Pueblo

From the accompanying plaque:

This is the oldest existing house in Los Angeles. Built about 1818 by Don Francisco Avila, it was occupied briefly as American headquarters in 1847. Severely damaged in the earthquake of 1971, the house is now restored as an example of California life style of the 1840s. La casa mas antigua en existencia en Los Angeles.
