To the best of my knowledge, the house once stood near those trees at the back of the strawberry farm. It is no longer there.

From the Guidebook:

In the 1820s, Don Ignacio Vallejo built the Casa Materna on Bolsa de San Cayetano. Don Ignacio and Dona María Antonio Lugo y Vallejo had 13 children--eight daughters and five sons, one of whom was General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo.
