Casa Alvarado

Casa Alvarado, Circa 1837. A rare architectural find in the Hacienda Historic District of Pomona, California. The hacienda is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a city of Pomona Historic Site. This adobe is rich in history with residence of famous artist, writers and poets. This house is a rare survivor exemplifying the fully developed adobe frame ranch house in its final courtyard form. It embodies all the significant characteristics, showing the development of this form from the Mexican frontier period. This hacienda home is all the more rare as it retains much of its original fabric, including hand planed beams, shutters, doors and hardware. Surrounded with gracious deep verandahs this home is one of the original adobe haciendas in the state of California. On a large lot, the grounds include many early plantings, including a rare 150-year-old orange tree from San Gabriel mission. With a devotion to preserving the original design.

This historic adobe is perfect for a B&B. The location is accessible to major freeways, conference centers and is half way between Los Angeles and Palm Springs.
