The Landmark Project: CHL# 180

CHL# 180 PLAZA HOTEL

In 1858 Angelo Zanetta added a second story to a one-story adobe barracks built in 1813-14 for soldiers who represented the Spanish government and operated it as a hotel for many years. Because San Juan Bautista was one of the main stage stops between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the Plaza Hotel became famous throughout California.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
