Our Mission:
Preserving the Past for Generations to Come

The Future of Rancho Camulos

Rancho Camulos Musuem is a 40-acre National Historic
Landmark situated within an 1800 acre working ranch. It
is the best remaining example of a Spanish-Mexican
rancho in its original rural environment and is noted for
its literary significance as the setting for Helen Hunt
Jackson's novel "Ramona." The Rancho Camulos
Museum is dedicated to researching, collecting,
preserving and interpreting the diverse cultural heritage
and agricultural history of Southern California from 1853
to 1943. Through restoration of its buildings and
grounds, Rancho Camulos seeks to connect the past
with the present by offering programs that will educate
and enrich all audiences.
