Exterior view of an adobe house on the northwest corner of what is now Franklin and Sycamore in Hollywood.; Built by Don Urquidez in 1853 on an Indian burial ground, General Harrison Otis purchased the land and adobe, which he later renamed "Outpost." During the years of Otis' ownership, "The Outpost" was a popular center for social gatherings for the general, his associates, and fellow veterans. This piece of real estate would change hands a number of times before becoming part of the Outpost Estates. In the early 1920s, Otis sold the property to Charles E. Toberman, who went on to develop the residential community of Outpost Estates.
