Camarillo Ranch House
Architects Herman Anlauf and Franklin Ward designed this 14-room Queen Anne Victorian home for Adolfo Camarillo. He had the home built as a romantic gesture to his new bride, Isabel. In 1892, the Camarillo family moved into the ranch house, where generations of Camarillos gathered with their families and neighbors to gather and celebrate.
Today, the Camarillo Ranch House still features original fixtures, fireplaces, windows, and more. Visitors can explore this splendidly preserved house, as well as its 4.5-acre surroundings, consisting of gardens and the ranch’s original barn and stables. With the docent to guide and share stories about this historic location, this destination offers visitors a change of pace and an opportunity to experience another era.
