- This five-acre early California rancho includes the original nine-room de la Osa Adobe, the two-story limestone Garnier House, the Reyes Hut, natural springs, and a lake (shaped like a Spanish guitar.) The springs at the site attracted Native Americans for centuries. Spanish explorer Captain Gaspar de Portolá stopped there in 1769. The spot later became a stagecoach stopover and a Basque sheepherder's home before construction of the rancho. The park contains exhibits on early California ranch life. A historical area with a enchanting spring.
