SITE OF THE
VALENZUELA ADOBE
 
Antonio Valenzuela, early ploneer of the
town of San Juan Capistrano, built the
adobe in the early 1840s, probably on
the ruins of a mission Indian adobe
dating to the 1790s. Later Valenzuela
family members worked as local
cowboys or vaqueros. The adobe was
damaged by fire in 1879: rebuilt ca.
1900, some portions endured until the
1960s. This site was also occupied
several thousand years ago by ancestors
of the Juaneno (Acagchemen) Indians, as
shown by artifacts recovered during
1988 excavations.

Andre Seguin built the first dry dock in Algiers in 1819 on land purchased from Barthelemy Duverjé. As the City did not want ship building and repair businesses on their side of the river, those businesses blossomed along this side of the river, giving employment to many. Enjoy the best view of the French Quarter and City skyline from here.
