Welcome, welcome to all you Westerners who may have had Irish ancestors migrating to the Old West! We are here to show you our "living history" examples of how they first lived when they came out to the truly "wild" west- and you can see it at 20% off when you wear green on this day! Come to see the nature, the Pioneer House, the way they even had to do their laundry! (An all day affair often).
We are looking forward to greeting you!
President's Day Speeches...Our Junior docents will be delivering short excerpts from speeches made by our most beloved Presidents. These "living history" events will occur throughout the day in the Main Inn building and on the porch. The Junior Docents have chosen those words that "speak to them" directly and will be sharing them with you!
Our Junior Docents perform, play the piano, and invite you to experience our "living history" environment...
The Director will be reporting on the exciting new radiocarbon dates reported from testing on Conejo Valley sites..all older than anticipated. We invite you to enjoy the Chumash Indian Museum and their monthly presentations at the Ventura County Archaeological Society. Donations are welcome...

Weather permitting- photos will be inside certain key buildings in the case of rain....
VICTORIAN ROMANCE SPEAKER: Andrea Tice, who helped to curate the Victorian Jewelry exhibit, is our expert on the romantic use of various media for remembrances in Victorian times. Women often used portions of their long hair to create amazing jewelry and art pieces- these were meant to convey their deep bond with the men who were part of their lives- men who went off to war, who travelled and were not home, and who were special members of the British society.
We are pleased to invite Mr. John Weigle of the Goebel Stamp Collectors Guild (Philatelic Society of Thousand Oaks). He will present a special program about the local history of the Conejo Valley as reflected through the stamps of the period.
There will be a table of stamps available for young stamp collectors, and historic stamps will be on display. Held at Anderson Hall on February 11, 2017. Please come at 1 pm to hear John speak about the fascinations of collecting historic stamps.
Why do some objects matter more to us than others? How do we assign meaning to those items? And how does culture influence that process?
Do you love roses? Our wonderful Rose pruning society will be out again to manage our award winning Rose gardens- thank you so much!
