Olivas Adobe, Ventura

4.3
The Olivas Adobe, located in Ventura, California, is an adobe built in 1841 by Raymundo Olivas.Olivas received, in recognition of his service at the Presidio of Santa Barbara, approximately 2250acre as part of land grant from Governor Juan Bautista Alvarado in 1841, which he named Rancho San Miguel. The land had originally been part of Mission San Buenaventura, but was appropriated during the secularization of the missions.Olivas built the adobe home in 1841, and expanded it in 1849 to two stories, making it the only such building in the area. He and his wife and their 21 children lived here until 1899. It later became part of Max Fleischmann's holdings (of yeast and margarine fame), and it was he who donated the land and the house to the City of Ventura.The adobe is rumored to be haunted by a woman ghost and is listed as one of Ventura County's few haunted locations.The Olivas Adobe is registered as California Historical Landmark #115 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

  • This was a music under the stars event. Absolutely wonderful time. Great music at an historical site. Heaven!
  • It was a harder hike with a unique view. There's also a natural hot spring there as well. If you are looking for some good cardio for a hike then this is right for you, it's steep and long enough to do just that
  • Fun experience! Enjoyed going with my son and his 5th grade class. Will be bringing my whole family soon.
  • Enjoy time and this beatiful place recomended
  • Cool piece of history and a great place venue
