My cousin & I met a friend in Calabasas for lunch and she had not been to the adobe so we took her to see it. We all had a great afternoon touring the home and the barns, and seeing the animals.

This is a neat place. They have interesting docents, a small farm (kids can feed the animals), and it's a historic landmark in the middle of Calabasas. It's worth a stop.

We took the grandchildren to a special event where they were letting kids experience, hands on. different historical activities. they loved it-from using an old treadle sewing machine to watching the blacksmith in action etc. Of course the animals are always a great draw.

We've come a long way. In some ways. Really enjoyed my visit here and the live animals are a great touch.

Make sure that you take one of the docent tours. It's a short tour but worth the time, and especially ask about the ghosts. The history is quite colorful and the grounds are kept authentically.
