Olivas Adobe Historical Park

Historical landmark
6 mi. away
The Olivas Adobe, located in Ventura, California, is an adobe built in 1841 by Raymundo Olivas. Olivas built the adobe home in 1841, and expanded it in 1849 to two stories, making it the only such building in the area. He and his wife and their 21 children lived here until 1899. It later became part of Max Fleischman's holdings (of yeast and margarine fame), and it was he who donated the land and the house to the City of Ventura. The Olivas Adobe is registered as California Historical Landmark #115 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
