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 October 23, 1961 reads "Shows model of Los Encinos project to Mrs. Carolyn Boniface." The article partially reads "Mrs. J. Earl Stewart's dream is the resotration of Los Encinos State Historical Monument, 16756 Moorpark St., Encino." Mrs. Stewart is president of the Encino Historical Society.
