The Marrón Adobe (1850's)

Built by the Marrón family, this L-shaped structure is an important and rare example of early stage adobe ranch house construction. The site is threatened by a proposed interchange in the Oceanside/Carlsbad area off Freeway 78. The planned alignment would envelope the whole property. This property hosts the Buena Vista Creek and El Salto Falls archaeological sites as well as the last stretch of natural open space in the area, which includes sensitive habitat. This is an important cultural landscape setting, and one of the last intact adobes in San Diego County. The property is owned by direct Marron and Hayes descendants. CalTrans and the Cities of Oceanside and Carlsbad need to reconsider an alternative alignment and respect this very special place.
