Olivas Adobe - Ventura
The Olivas Adobe, located in Ventura, California, is an adobe built in 1841 by Raymundo Olivas. Olivas built the adobe home in 1841, and expanded it in 1849 to two stories, making it the only such building in the area. He and wife and their 21 children lived here until 1899. It later became part of Max Fleischman's holdings (of yeast and margarine fame), and it was he who donated the land and the house to the City of Ventura.
