Regarding Casa de Lopez. Taken from the Old Town San Diego Walking Tour Brochure:
At the end of Twiggs Street you will come to a reconstruction of the Casa de Lopez, now occupied by a restaurant. The original adobe was built in 1835 by Francisco Lopez. Lopez added rooms to the home as his family grew, and called it La Casa Larga ("The Long House").
