This is a remnant of the original Spanish Rancho, and is the oldest house in Glendale. The adobe, built in 1828 housed the daughter and grandson of the original owner of the Rancho San Rafael. On the grounds is the spot where terms were negotiated for the Treaty of Cahuenga, which ended the Mexican-American War in 1847, giving California to the US. It is now an oak-shaded Glendale park. Tours are given by docents from the Days of the Verdugos Association.
