Casa De Carrillo
California State Historic Landmark 74
#074 Casa de Carrillo
Presidio commandante Francisco Maria Ruiz built this house next to his 1808 pear
garden late in 1821 for his close relative and fellow soldier, Joaquin Carrillo, and his large
family. From this adobe dwelling, in April 1829, daughter Josefa Carrillo eloped to Chile with
Henry Delano Fitch. When Ruiz died in 1839 and Joaquin soon afterwards, son Ramon Carrillo sold
this property to Lorenzo Soto. It was transferred several times before 1932, deteriorating
gradually, until George Marston and associates restored the house and grounds and deeded them to
the city of San Diego as a golf course.
About 100 ft NE of Juan St on Wallace St, Presidio Golf Course, San Diego.
