“In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all; and, to the young, it comes with bitterest agony, because it takes them unawares.” -Abraham Lincoln, December 23, 1862, in a letter of condolence to the daughter of a long-time friend killed in the Civil War.

May the bonds of community provide strength and comfort to those who lost their loved ones Wednesday night, November 7th, 2018 .

The Conejo Valley Historical Society was formed in 1965 to save the original Grand Union Hotel from demolition.  With that success behind them, the Society developed a docent program and began leading tours of the Hotel (rebuilt in 1976 as the Stagecoach Inn).  Fast forward to 2018, and the Stagecoach Inn Museum is a beloved member of the community, offering family-oriented special events, lectures, school programs, and a fun and friendly group of docents.  Come visit the Stagecoach Inn Museum Complex and see what's happening today!

Spend your future being part of our past! 

Have you always longed to dress up in Victorian costumes, put on your cowboy gear in the morning, or play the part of a pioneer in the Old West?  If the answer is yes, then you're the person we've been looking for.  Our docents interpret Conejo Valley history in costume, sharing their love of history with museum visitors: young, old, and in-between. 

  If you'd like to join in the fun, leave a message for Nellie Cusworth at 805 497 1930 or nelliekerrcusworth@gmail.com.

The Stagecoach Inn Museum is deeply grateful to all of its volunteers for their commitment, camaraderie, and hard work.
