  • A review of an historic state park is tough, what are the main points to consider? Is it worth stopping in considering the significance of the site? How accessible are the artifacts and how authentic is the historical landmark. These are but a few of the items on my list. Considering the aforementioned, this location gets a "it's okay" three star rating. I found the reconstruction of the elements a bit out of context and inaccurate. I do think the pioneer ranches are very significant in shaping California, and I found this site worth stopping by to visit, but I didn't find the historical documentation very informative. Instead, the park posts quotes from the actual inhaplbitants of the site. While these are relevant, I believe they are supporting details that would accompany better documentary literature that described each room and historical reference. As an aside, I found the park staff at this location too awkwardly aggressive in their collection of fees. The attendant on site was so persistent in her need to collect the $3 I witnessed four visitors turn around and leave.
  • A phenomenal experience. We arrived on a weekday and the place was desolate (except the park ranger) so we go to run around and really explore. You are greeted by a wall of cactus! and then, around the corner, the adobe comes into view. A really neat site and it is definitely worth taking a trip to see it.
  • Came here for an immersive Shakespeare play. Beautiful setting.
  • Agressive receptionist, never said hello. Right as I entered she demanded money.
  • One of the best preserved adobe buildings in the state. We were there for a We Players event, which was incredibly fun.
