Bushes are planted along the covered porch. Several potted plants hang from the ceiling of the porch. A chimney (or stove) pipe juts from the incline roof.; Picture file card reads: "Bertrand Riviere was born in Haute Garonne, France, in 1817. In 1850 he started on a sailing vessel for America and in nine months landed in San Francisco. He followed mining for two years and then came south to Los Angeles. After several successful years as a dairyman, he purchased 160 acres in the vicinity of what is now Jefferson and Western, and took up his adobe in the then neglected adobe near Cimarrion. At the age of 50 he married in 1866, Sacramento Ruiz, 20 years old, a native daughter from the vicinity of Culver City. He died in 1896."
