Heritage Network Meeting Minutes – Oct 12, 2013

Minutes of the Heritage Network Meeting 10/12/13 at the Carrillo Adobe Jo Markwyn (acting secretary for this meeting) Dan Murley spoke briefly about the significance of the Carrillo Adobe. He also appealed for someone to agree to be secretary for the Heritage Network to replace Evelyn McClure who is moving away. Larry Carrillo of the Friends of the Carrillo Adobe provided information on the current status of the Carrillo Adobe, the site of which is currently the property of Barry Swenson who proposes to build on part of the land and who has agreed to a park around the Adobe. However, plans have been stymied for years by the financial problems and exactly what will happen is unclear. He also pointed out that the remaining part of the Adobe is the house. The foundations of the larger north wing which was pictured in the HABS photos from the 1930's can still be seen when the vegetation is cleared. In addition recent archaeological investigations have discovered foundations to the south of the Adobe, between it and Montgomery Dr. These may not have been built upon. Larry also commended Dave Franzman's SRHS History Club for their work in cleaning the underbrush from the area so that today's meeting could be held. After the meeting Larry conducted a very informative tour of the Adobe. Read more
