Ranch House at Warner's

Vicenta Carrillo, a prominent early Californio woman rancher, built the adobe ranch house in 1857. Located within a huge expanse of open land now owned by the Vista Irrigation District, the site possesses a historic setting that has remained virtually unchanged since the mid 19th century. Once an important stop for early overland migrants to California and the Butterfield Coach, today it is a designated National Historic Landmark.

In 2000, after unchecked deterioration prompted its first appearance on the Most Endangered List, the VID matched funds from an anonymous donor to restore the house and to stabilize its historic barn. Unfortunately, despite a major initial investment of money, the work that was done was not adequate to prevent further damage to the building. It is feared that both the adobe and the barn will be lost soon if immediate action is not taken to secure these structures. SOHO is pursuing funds to restore this outstanding landmark of the American West.

SAVED - New funding has been received along with a reestablished commitment to restore this National Historic Landmark resource.
