Thank goodness for Christine Sterling who preserved this bit of history for us Californians. You walk the sidewalk and are pleasantly surprised to see a Mexican village appear. The Adobe house is a step back in history to the 1840s. Docents are available to answer questions and signs are all around to educate. No fee but donations are appreciated. After a visit to the home, shop the market, eat Mexican food and visit the zocalo at the end of the street. Good place to practice your spanish. Had a very enjoyable afternoon.
