We went to see and read the historical plaque at Caliornia's First Theatre. It is located in the Monterey State Historic Park.
Jack Swan built the adobe theater in 1846-47. It was used as a lodging house and tavern. It was used as a theatre in 1850 when US army officers from Colonel Stevenson's New York Volunteers produced plays and showed them there for a fee.
The First Theatre will take a few minutes to see. If one wants to see more of the historical buildings in Monterey State Historic Park it can take several hours.
