Inscription. The stone pilings seen in this archaeological excavation unit are part of the original foundation of the Casa de Aguirre built circa 1853. The original adobe mansion extended ten feet to the east of where the current building ends. The 21st century re-creation of the Aguirre house follows the footprint of the historic structure, except for these sections of the foundation that were preserved for viewing.
