Inscription.  In 1880, Juan Luna built this single-story, Sonoran-style adobe house for his wife and put the title in her name. According to Spanish tradition, it was the polite thing to do. The building's two L-shaped wings are one-room deep, and the original roof vigas and latillas are well preserved. Subsequent owners covered the ceiling's exposed saquaro ribs with muslin for protection. Santiago Loroņa bought the house in 1904, and it remained the family residence for several decades.
