Inscription.  Within the building on this site stand the remaining walls of the Trujillo Adobe. The adobe was the center of La Placita de Los Trujillos, a village founded here in the 1860s. Many generations of the Trujillo family lived in the adobe. La Placita was a thriving hispanic community of families inspired to come to California by Lorenzo Trujillo in the 1840s. Many of those same families moved to La Placita after the disastrous flood of 1862. Many La Placita descendants continue to call the area home to this day.
