The main gate of the presidio was located near what is now Alameda Street, just north of this spot. The gate was built from mesquite timbers and had a platform above, where a guard stood watch. In the late 1860's, the families of Milton Duffield, Hiram Stevens, and Edward Nye Fish lived in the Sonoran row houses that still stand along Main Street, north of Alameda Street.
