The Vincent de la Osa Adobe, built in 1849 by Don Vicente De La Osa, was a favored stopping place for the numerous travelers on El Camino Real. It stands on land that is a part of the one-square-league Rancho El Encino granted in 1845 by Governor Pio Pico to three Indians, Ramon, Francisco, and Roque, whose interests were purchased by Don Vicente. Originally the land was under the jurisdiction of Mission San Fernando Rey founded in 1797.
Photograph caption dated June 1, 1957 reads "Stream fills pool. Ranger Schneider points out tiny stream that fills Encino Pool with warm spring water. Water cools off quickly after running into larger body." State Park Ranger Melvin Schneider is the monument supervisor.; See images #00125749 through #00125756 for all photos in this series.
