The Peralta Adobe is the oldest building in San Jose, California. It is named after Luís María Peralta, its most famous resident. The original builder was probably Manuel Gonzalez, an Apache Indian. The adobe covers an area of 20 feet by 41 feet (6 x 12.4 m), and has two connecting rooms of approximately equal size.
