Peralta Adobe and Fallon House


Built in 1797, the Peralta Adobe is the last remaining structure from El Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe, also known as Pueblo Numero Uno. See the Adobe’s horno, an outside working oven, or venture inside the home and see two rooms furnished as they might have been when they were occupied by the Gonzales and Peralta families. Across the street from the Adobe, you'll find the exquisite Fallon House, built in 1855 by one of San José’s earliest mayors. The Victorian mansion showcases 15 fully furnished rooms typical of the Victorian period. Learn about Thomas Fallon, a frontiersman in the John C. Fremont expedition, and Carmel Fallon, the daughter of one of the most prominent Mexican landowners in California. Historic tours are available on an on-going basis.
