3. Adobe Ruins at Stagecoach Park
The Adode ruins are all that remain from the day when Andreas Antonnio Ybarra occupied his ranch house on 4,431 acres he called Rancho Encintas. Ybarra, a Mexican national and military leader, was granted the land surrounding Stagecoach Park from the Mexican government. Later, the United States took possession of all of “Alta California”, forming the state of California as we know it today. In 1868 J.S. Manasse and Marcus Schiller, two San Diego merchants baugh the ranch from Ybarra for a reported $3,000. The new owners opened the Manasse Stop for weary stagecoach travelers making the two day trip between San Diego's Franklin Hotel and Los Angeles. With an overnight stay in San Juan Capistrano, the whole trip cost $10.
