The restored residence is one of the oldest adobe houses in the region, and offers visitors a glimpse into the life of 19th-century farming families.
Whimsical, colorful, and spectacular are just some of the words that describe Queen Califia's Magical Circle, a sculpture park designed by the late Franco-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle. Don't miss the chance to marvel at these dazzling and thought-provoking sculptures made from hand-cut glass and colored mosaics.
