1. Sepulveda House Marker
Inscription.  Eloisa Martinez de Sepulveda built this Eastlake Victorian style structure for use as stores and as a boarding house. After Olvera Street had been transformed into a Mexican marketplace in 1930, the cellar and first floor of this building were rented out to artisans and shopkeepers while the second floor became a center for craftsmen and artists, and boasted an import shop and tea room. During the 1930s, the Yale Puppeteers maintained a theater on the first floor and in World War II it housed a USO Canteen. Now it serves as the Park’s Visitors’ and Orientation Center and has exhibits illustrating life in Los Angeles in the 1890s.
 
Erected by El Pueblo de Los Angeles.
