The Cottage Gallery is located on historic Los Rios Street in San Juan Capistrano. Our address is 31701 Los Rios Street. Los Rios Street is the oldest remaining residential street in California dating back to 1794 and draws lots of visitors to the area who love to stroll the length of the tree lined street. Our cottage was built in 1890, is on the Register of Historic Places and is known as the Rios StandfieldHome. We are only 3 blocks from the beautiful Mission and featured on the Guided Walking Tours offered to visitors.
More history: In 1794, adobes were constructed on Los Rios Street to house soldiers and construction workers of the Mission. Three of the original adobes still exist. In the late 1800’s our Cottage was constructed in a second wave of homes built by European immigrants.
Our Cottage is located 3 doors down from the historic and popular restaurants The Ramos House Café and The Teahouse.
