Join us on November 12 for a tour of Rancho Los Encinos, an adobe rancho built in 1849 on the site of an ancient Native American village. The rancho is located on the original El Camino Real route (now Ventura Blvd) in the city of Encino (spanish for “Oak”), which is named for the rancho. We will learn the rich history of the rancho and tour the various buildings constructed on the site in the mid to late 1800’s, plus the stone-lined pond, in the shape of a Spanish guitar built on a spring by the Garnier brothers in the early 1870’s. A driving tour will precede the event, circumnavigating the original border of the 4,460 acre property. Afterward we will gather for lunch at a restaurant adjacent to the pond.

October Recap: 28 members with 8 TCs (one a TA actually) took part in our October Conclave event in Morro Bay.
