New Feature!



When it was built in the mid-19th century, this two-story home, its grounds, and its surrounding structures were the centerpiece of a grand ranch. Restored and furnished to its original state, the home is a window into life during California's mission period. The lovely grounds feature mature plantings and a Spanish-styled fountain, and the home boasts period furnishings, photographs, and a chapel. Educational tour groups can often be seen watching calf wrangling or adobe making. Visitors will also find a visitors center, a museum, and regularly scheduled special events such as music under the stars, living history day or candlelight tours!
