ADOBE


The kitchen garden was completed in 2021 thanks! to the Franciscan Friars at St. Francis of Assisi Novitiate Conventual Franciscans in Nipomo. They both sponsored the garden and donated their time to build it. Originally located along Nipomo Creek for its accessibility to water and rich clay soil. To make the garden more accessible, it is currently located just south and east of the Dana adobe. While the garden includes some modern features, the plants and planting method remain authentic to the mid-1800s.




ADOBE



A visit to the Petaluma Adobe State Historic Park will bring you back to the largest privately owned adobe building in Northern California in the 1830-40's and the center of activity on one of the most properous private estates established during the Mexican Period. The matanza (slaughtering season) has just ended in October on Rancho de Petaluma (as it was known) and the people living near the rancho are excited. The end of the matanza means the beginning of the Fandango (a celebration and dance). As you tour the rooms of the Adobe, you can feel the excitement as preparation for the Fandango is under way. The hides are drying on the racks, the animals are put away, and the music is playing as people start to put on their fancy clothes for the festivities.


The mission of the Friends of Rancho San Pedro is to preserve and increase community awareness of early California history as it relates to the Dominguez family, homestead adobe and the Rancho San Pedro, the first Spanish land grant in California. This is accomplished through educational programs and the operation of the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum. 041b061a72
