Located in the Pájaro Valley, the two-story Rancho San Andrés Castro Adobe is a historic rancho hacienda that was built between 1848-49. This park is currently an active construction site, and is open only during scheduled events.
Open House: Romance on the Rancho
Sunday, February 11 from 11am to 3pm
In the 170 years since it was built, the Castro Adobe has hosted its share of love and loss. Come celebrate the often romanticized Mexican Rancho era of California history with us, and learn a bit about what it was like to live and love all those years ago. Feel free to bring a plus-one! Free admission (donations gratefully accepted). Limited parking (carpooling encouraged). This is an active construction site, and is open only during scheduled events. Events made possible by Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks and California State Parks.
The Castro Adobe offers free 2.5 hour education programs in the spring of 2018 to supplement teaching of 3rd grade (local history) and 4th grade (California history) content standards. (K-college can be accomodated for tours by request.) Please check back here for a link to start the scheduling process once our new staff settles in (tentatively, October 2017).
