Camarillo Ranch House Tours in Camarillo, California

copyright beachcaliforniaIn Ventura County, the City of Camarillo is located in the Pleasant Valley at the bottom of the Conejo Grade. Many consider this the line of demarcation, separating Los Angeles from the Central Coast.  Though some L.A. commuters live in the area,  the look and feel of Camarillo is distinctively refreshing and open. With Highway 101 passing through the city (pictured above),  thousands of travelers per day stop to enjoy Camarillo's fine outlet shops and dining opportunities. 

 

Camarillo is also home to two fabulous museums. The historic Camarillo Ranch (top left photo) recently opened its doors for the first ever public viewing of a spectacular, 17-room Victorian home. There's also a wonderful air museum with brand new hangars housing several war planes (right photo) that are being refurbished, and for sports enthusiasts, there are four public golf courses. 

 

Located 17 miles east of Ventura, the city was named after Juan Camarillo who came to San Buenaventura in 1857 and purchased Rancho Calleguas in 1875.

CAMARILLO RANCH  Open Wednesdays -Noon to 4 PM, Saturdays -10 AM to 2 PM and Sundays -Noon to 4 PM, 201 Camrillo Ranch Road, Camarillo, CA  Phone: 805.389.8182 -  Docent led tours of a Queen Anne style Victorian house on a 4 and 1/2 acre ranch.  Operated by the Camarillo Ranch Foundation, the 17-room mansion contains 6,000 square feet of interior space and includes two staircases, Victorian exhibits, a gift shop and beautiful gardens. Built in 1892 as a family residence for Isabel Camarillo from her loving 28-year old husband, Adolfo, this gracious place has captured the hearts of guests such as Hollywood celebrities Tom Mix and Rita Hayworth. Adolfo Camarillo, founder of the City of Camarillo, once managed a 10,000 acre ranch where he developed a breed of horse, the Camarillo White Horse, which is seen in parades today. The prominent figure in local history served as Ventura County Supervisor, as well. He died in 1958.  The City of Camarillo acquired the ranch house and a portion of the original property in 1998 and operates it through the Camarillo Ranch Foundation. Seeking to preserve the legacy of a prominent Mexican-American family through education and interpretation of the historic site, we recommend you veer off the beaten path of Highway 101 at Flynn Road where you can find Camarillo Ranch Road adjacent to 101.
