CHL# 451 THE ORTEGA-VIGARE ADOBE
Erected during mission days, 1792-1805, this is the second oldest adobe in this region. Originally ‘L’-shaped, it is now only half its original size. In 1859, the adobe became the property of Don Jean Vigare and in the early 1860s, as San Gabriel’s first bakery, it was separated from the mission’s lime orchard by a high cactus wall.
Christine’s Note: This adobe is a private residence and entry behind the gates appears to not be possible unless you happen to catch it when it is on and off the home buying market.
