From Wikipedia:
"The Los Rios Historic District is a neighborhood in the city of San Juan Capistrano, California and, with buildings dating to 1794, is the oldest continually occupied neighborhood in the state.[2][3] The nearby Mission San Juan Capistrano was the first of the 21 California Missions to have Indians, soldiers and workers live outside the mission grounds.[3] Three adobes are remaining in the Los Rios neighborhood itself, although there are a number of others close by outside of it which were part of what was once a larger neighborhood.[3]
The neighborhood originally had 40 adobe structures but most were replaced in the 19th century by wooden board and batten structures.[4] Thirty-one of the buildings in Los Rios and the surrounding area are on the national register of historic places.[4]
Other points of interest in or adjacent to the district include the historic train depot, El Adobe de Capistrano and the Basilica."
