Just a short drive from Santa Clarita through the beautiful Heritage Valley, this National Historic Landmark is where the early California lifestyle is preserved in its original rural environment. This 1,800 acre working ranch was one of the settings for Helen Hunt’s 1884 novel “Ramona” and where the 1910 Mary Pickford movie of that novel was filmed.
The non-profit museum is a portion of the ranch containing 1853 and 1920 adobes, an 1860’s chapel, a 1930’s schoolhouse, winery building, and beautiful grounds. Access is only by docent led tours, which are usually Sundays from 1-4 PM and by appointment. Call or visit our website for current hours and activities. The suggested donation is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children 12 and under. School tours, special group tours and special events such as weddings can also be arranged.
