1. Murray-Green Homes Marker
Inscription. In 1852 Irish immigrants Michael Murray and Jeremiah Fallon purchased 1000 acres of land from Don Jose Maria Amador, and on this site Murray erected his modest home in 1857. Murray sold his house to John Green, proprietor of the Green Store, whose 11-room "addition" became known as "Green's Mansion." Both homes stood until 1967, when the Murray house was destroyed by fire and the deteriorated Green Mansion was demolished.
