The Moreno and Machado adobe.
Located at the Santa Rosa Plateau.
The Santa Rosa Plateau became Rancho Santa Rosa under a 47,000 acre 1846 Mexican land grant to cattle and sheep rancher Juan Moreno. In 1855, Senor Moreno sold his ranch to land-grantee neighbor Augustin Machado (owner of the Rancho La Laguna, today the Lake Elsinore area) for one thousand American dollars. The Moreno and Machado adobes still stand as the oldest structures in Riverside County.
