Marron Adobe

The oldest house in Carlsbad, the Marrón Adobe is also in the path of relentless development. Even though members of the Marrón family still own and live in the house and despite serious objections voiced by Native Americans, environmentalists, wildlife experts and preservationists, the Corky McMillin Company plans to build a massive housing tract on the area's last piece of unspoiled open land, which brushes up against the historic site. McMillin Company cited the need for profit as their reason for building over 500 homes versus the community's consensus for 260 homes. If legal actions being taken by the Preserve Calavera group are not successful, this unnecessary project will decimate the natural and cultural landscape surrounding this important landmark and block historic views of the Marrón property and forever irreparably impact the neighborhood.
