This historic home was moved to this site next to the train station and near several adobe structures of significance to San Juan Capistrano's past. Each room has several interesting displays and a framed account of the room's function and what is shown (an early "vacuum cleaner," for example, samples of early wallpaper, the first telephone that was installed in...

It was a really tiny house, there wasn't much to see and it took probably less then 4 minutes to walk through it. On the bright side, its really close to the mission, so if you are in the area, why not?

Fun trip down the historical section of San Juan Capistrano. Great to see references applicable to the mission as well! Wish more people would visit and donate.

The O'Neill Museum is a wonderful little gem to explore. It is a house from the 1870's furnished with antiques and black and white framed historical photos. It doesn't take long to walk through the rooms. The entrance fee is $1 for adults and 50 cents for children- a true bargain.They also have items inside for sale such as books... More
