Rancho Guajome Celebrates 150 Years

Originally a land grant of over 2,200 acres, approximately 560 acres are preserved as a regional park owned and managed by the County of San Diego, Department of Parks and Recreation. The rancho's centerpiece is its adobe home. At nearly 7000 square feet and containing 28 rooms, it was the focal point of northern San Diego's social, political, and economic life in the second half of the 19th century. Rancho Guajome is a National Historic Landmark, restored by the County of San Diego to its original splendor. It is maintained as a historic site, and is open to the public for tours and special events. Continuing research is an important component of the County's stewardship.

If you haven't visited Rancho Guajome you must take the time to do so; it is one of California's greatest treasures. Call (760) 724-4082 for information.
