Model A and Model T car show returns to Rios-Caledonia Adobe June 6
The 2015 event will celebrate 100 year anniversary of old Highway 101
Experience a bit of local history at the 2015 Model “A” and Model “T” Car Show on Saturday, June 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rios-Caledonia Adobe, located at 700 S. Mission St. in San Miguel. The family-friendly event is free to the public, with food and drinks available for purchase.
“The cars are really something,” said Joyce Herman, administrator for the Friends of The Adobe, “and this year we will have a large display of historical photos that will give visitors a glimpse into the time of the original stagecoach road turned Highway 101.”
That former stagecoach road, according to Herman, was paved as a highway in 1915 and was in use until 1938. It’s the very same road that visitors drive as they enter the grounds of the historic adobe and is one of only fourteen pieces left in the state.
“It is the original paved highway that traversed California from San Diego to above San Francisco,” said Herman.
Throughout the event on Saturday, tours of the Adobe will be offered, and Three Amigos will be selling refreshments and lunch. In addition, there will be wine and olive oil tasting, a 50-50 drawing, and live music provided by Jeff Beaumont and Friends.
