Old Adobe Barn, also known as Adobe Post Office, is a historic barn in La Grange, California.[2] It is the oldest building in the town being built prior to 1850 by the first French settlers in the area. It was used as a post office. The barn is made of adobe bricks on the side walls, and of wooden planks on the southern facade.
