Monterey County Points of Interest
This small adobe was built in 1834 by Thomas Oliver Larkin and has changed little from its construction.
In 1847, it was the quarters of Lieutenant William T. Sherman who was in charge of troops constructing a fort on the site of today's Presidio Military Reservation. Sherman would eventually achieve the rank of General in the American Civil War.
The entrance is located in the gardens of Larkin House.
