1. Elena Llescas House Marker
Inscription. Built for Pablo and Elena Llescas in the early 1860s, this single-story row house has two exterior walls not parallel with respect to the other walls. This indicates construction prior to the 1866 Ruggles Street Grid. This building is constructed on the property lines on the south and west. The gabled roof was added over the Sonoran mud roof in the 1890s, and the original viga and saguaro-rib ceilings are still intact and visible. The building has had varied uses: private dwelling, chinese laundry, and offices.
