Long Description:
In 1858 Angelo Zanetta added a second story to a one-story adobe barracks built in 1813-14 for soldiers who represented the Spanish government and operated it as a hotel for many years. Because San Juan Bautista was one of the main stage stops between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the Plaza Hotel became famous throughout California.

The building is now filled with great museum exhibits, although a fee is required to enter. There are lots of plaques in the area, but the official state plaque is missing.
