Regarding Adrian Recinos Born in this House. Adrián Recinos (1886–1962) was a Guatemalan historian, essayist, Maya scholar and translator, and diplomat. Recinos was a great student of Guatemalan history, mainly of the Maya civilization and the ancient history of the K'iche' and Kaqchikel people.

He also published translations of other ancient Mayan manuscripts, including the Anales de los Cakchiqueles.
