Additional comments.
1. The Salvador Vallejo Adobe
This historic adobe, built by Indian labor, was originally one story. The second story was probably added in 1852 when the northern portion, which functioned as the El Dorado Hotel, was purchased by Cumberland Presbytery. From 1858 to 1864, Cumberland College, a co-educational boarding school, occupied the corner site. The wooded Greek Revival façade was added during this period. The portion of the original adobe became the home of Camille Aguillon family during the 19870’s. Aguillon made and sold wine on the ground floor through 1906.
