Rios Caledonia Adobe re-opening April 9
–The Friends of the Adobes has announced the re-opening of the Historic Rios-Caledonia on Friday, April 9. They plan to be open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12-3 p.m. They will welcome visitors to see the new entryway, the well-tended grounds as they are preparing for their beautiful “spring bloom,” and the progress on the evolving “Salinan People” display. Bring a lunch and enjoy it at one of the picnic tables on the grounds.
The Rios-Caledonia Adobe depends totally on volunteers and presently they are in need of Sunday volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering, even just one day a month (3 1/2 hrs), should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a contact form on their website.
The Friends of the Adobes have also announced the launch of a new website. View it now at www.historic-rios-caledonia.org.
Historic Rios-Caledonia Adobe was built in 1835 just south of the San Miguel Mission as a home for the overseer of Mission lands. It is located on the old mission trail between San Francisco and Los Angeles and is eight miles north of Paso Robles. This historic site is well preserved with the original Inn and Stagecoach stop now a museum and small gift shop. A building was added in 1930 that is now a unique history research library.
To visit Historic Rios-Caledonia Adobe, take the San Miguel off-ramp exit from Highway 101.
