Adobe was a common material used to construct buildings from the Spanish mission period of California history through the 1930s.

Adobe is a sun-dried brick made from soil or clay. This structure was built to resemble an adobe dwelling in Kern County during the mid 1800s.

The adobe bricks used to construct this building were salvaged from a 1930s Bakersfield residence. The adobe house, located near Fairfax Road and Brundage Lane, belonged to William and Flora Deuel Combs.

In 1979, Dr. Lewis L. Sandidge and Dr. Dyrel Faulstick donated the adobe bricks used to reconstruct this building. Chicanos Unidos Para El Progreso constructed this building on the museum grounds in 1977.
