#534 Rancho Los Putos
This is the site of Rancho Los Putos, of 10 square leagues, granted in 1845 by Governor Pio Pico to Juan Felipe Pena and Manuel Cabeza Vaca. The Pena adobe, erected here in 1842, is still owned by descendants of the Pena-Vaca families. The town of Vacaville, nearby, was established in 1851 on land sold by Vaca to William McDaniel.
