Work in Progress  

Special Schedule

The Rancho is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. now through the end of the year. This modified schedule will be in place while the Ranch House is undergoing cutting-edge seismic stabilization, re-roofing and other mechanical upgrades.

The ranch house will be closed to the public throughout Fall, 2017 but the rest of the site is open for tours including the beautiful historic gardens, the fascinating barnyard with its livestock and the state-of-the-art Rancho Center.
