JOSE DOLORES GARCIA
Jose Dolores Garcia was a prominent
citizen of San Juan Capistrano who was
of Juaneno Indian and Spanish descent.
In 1862 he married Maria Refugia Yorba
at the Mission. He promised her a new
and unique house. After extensive
research on horseback in the Anaheim
area, he built this Victorian-style house
around 1870. Here they lived happily
until his untimely death in 1897. His
grieving widow then sold the home.
