Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 15, 1970):
Constructed in 1827-29, this was once considered one of the finest houses in Mexican California. This typical example of a large Spanish-Mexican one-story town house has a hall that also served as a chapel and school from the 1830s to 1856. Don Jose Antonio Estudillo, builder of the house, served as mayor and justice of the peace for San Diego.
