38 cupule rock.
In 1850 Augustin Bernal constructed his adobe, which still stands, near this cupule rock about a mile south of the Alviso adobe of Rancho Santa Rita. Today, some maps call this site “Alviso Adobe,” but the National Register of Historic of Historic Places lists it as “Bernal Adobe.”
The location of Bernal Adobe represents an instance of the maxim “Follow the Indians to find the nicest place to live.” The site is not far from the confluence of Arroyo Valle and Arroyo de la Laguna Creeks and abutted a shallow freshwater lake in Pelnen times.
