Photograph of an exterior view of the Miguel Leonis adobe from a nearby dirt road, 1962. A two-story building in the Monterey style of architecture is pictured at center, obscured by heavy plant growth. A windowed door and a solid door can be seen at the entrance to the right of center, perpendicular to one another. Above, the balcony can be seen, its balustrade missing several ballusters. A brick chimney can be seen atop of the house's roof.; In the late 1960's a real estate developer almost succeeded in leveling the home and surrounding area in order to construct a shopping mall. Kay Beachy, a civic-minded local, launched the preservation campaign that rescued the house in 1965. The structure was then maintained by the Leonis Adobe Association.
