Description:

The Fallon House was built by one of San Jose's first mayors. When touring this house, you will learn about Thomas Fallon and Carmel Fallon, two important people in San Jose's history. The Peralta Adobe house was built in 1797, and is the last structure from El Pueblo de San Jose de Guadalupe. It is the oldest building in San Jose. A popular site is the horno, which is an outside oven famous during that time period. The two rooms inside the house are furnished similar to how the Gonzales and Peralta families may have furnished them. San Pedro Square Market is currently being built around the Peralta Adobe house.
