From the plaque:

Established in 1884 by Mexican War Veterans and members of the Grand Army of the Republic who recognized the need for a home for California’s aged and disabled veterans. In January 1897 the Veterans Home Association deeded the home and its 910 acres of land to the State of California which has maintained it since that date.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the State Department of Veterans Affairs, April 1, 1969. State Department of Parks & Recreation and the State Department of Veteran Affairs, April 1, 1969.
