Plaza Hall

This week, I shall be taking you over to San Juan Bautista, which is just a short hop from Highway 25, heading west on Highway 156. 

San Juan Bautista was a bustling city in the 1800s. Several stage coach lines stopped in the city every day. The Plaza Hall, also known as the Zanetta House, is one of the original structures from that time. It is part of the San Juan Bautista State Historic Park. Several rooms in the building have displays showing furniture, clothing, and other items from the 1800s. To learn more about this historic park, click here.

On the first Saturday of every month, the park holds a Living History Day. Park visitors can talk with Victorian ladies, mountain men, and other characters from various days of yore, as they give craft and cooking demonstrations. To learn more, check out the Plaza History Association Web site.
