Lopez Adobe
(San Fernando, CA)

In 2010, Spectra Company was asked to assist with the restoration of The Lopez Adobe. The property, located at 1100 Pico Street in San Fernando, was completed in 1883 by Valentin Lopez. It is one of the oldest private residences and the first two-story adobe built as residence in the San Fernando Valley. The adobe was built in the Monterrey style which was popular in California in the mid to late 1800s.
