Bring Dad and the whole family and learn from Olivas Adobe Historical Interpreters how to rope a steer, track an animal, create an adobe brick and discover more about California’s “Rancho” period in history this Father's Day at the Olivas Abode in Ventura at 4200 Olivas Park Drive.

Part of the periodic Olivas Adobe Family Sundays series, this FREE family friendly event will cover historic aspects of adobe living. It’s also your last chance to see the new brood of Great Horned Owls as they fledge and take flight. Costumed Junior Docents lead tours of the adobe.

Free admission but a donation of a non-perishable item for Food Share would be appreciated.
The Olivas Abode is Ventura County's only remaining Monterey-style adobe home from the Rancho era - California Historical Landmark No. 115 that was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. The location celebrates Ventura’s Rancho and Latino heritage .

Visitors may experience the expansive adobe home and courtyard built between 1847-49 by wealthy Don Raymundo Olivas on his 4,700-acre Rancho San Miguel with grounds open daily (free) and house open for tours Saturdays & Sundays, 11 am-4 pm or by arrangement. Purchase tickets in the gift shop: $5/adult, $3/child/ senior.
