Regarding Reyes Adobe Historical Site. Reyes Adobe was the first home built in Agoura Hills back in 1850. The home was built by José Paulino Reyes, grandson of Juan Francisco Reyes, a Mexican soldier with the Portolá expedition who was granted local land in 1837. The City of Agoura Hills purchased the site in 1983 and maintains the adobe as a museum and cultural center.
