Located on Olvera Street in the middle of a large Mexican market area is Avila Adobe. Avila Adobe is a 1970’s rebuilt replica of an 1820 home that was destroyed by an earthquake in 1971. There is a lot of interesting information on early Los Angeles and California history. The walk through took less than a half hour and showed what life was like in the 1820-40 time period. The attraction is free and worth a pass through if you are on Olvera Street.

Worth a stop if you want to experience Olvera street and all its colorful noise - ditto the park across the way, often host to ethnic festivals, etc. There are other additional free museum-ettes scattered around (Fire, Italian, Chinese, Sepulveda), so you can spend an hour, two, maybe three strolling, eating, viewing. House itself arranged into 5-6 rooms - docent in front of house may or may not give you info depending on whether she's engaged in conversation with fellow park worker. Public bathroom is terrrible, and seems to be the only one in immediate vicinity. Parking on local lots is $15 (weekends) but if you will walk a block or three the meters were free on a Sunday at least.

We toured here as part of Olvera Street sightseeing. It was interesting but requires you to read the panels. It is a tranquil spot and indicative of an earlier era.

Getting an impression of life, for some at least, in the city’s early days was exciting. Marvellously persevered and renovated, its whitewashed walls, cooking and heating items, plus means of transport in the guise of a horse are all to be seen. Set in a tranquil garden with local flora, it was an interesting time.
