Bienvenido and welcome to Rancho Camulos Museum near Piru, California, a National Historic Landmark, where the history, myth and romance of Old California still linger. Rancho Camulos stands as a vibrant reminder of the state’s Spanish and Mexican heritage. Established by Ygnacio del Valle in 1853, Rancho Camulos was once part of a 48,000 acre Mexican land grant deeded to Ygnacio’s father Antonio del Valle in 1839. Rancho Camulos is the best remaining example of a Spanish-Mexican rancho in its original rural environment and is noted for its literary significance as the setting for Helen Hunt Jackson’s novel Ramona. The board, staff and docents of Rancho Camulos are dedicated to researching, collecting, preserving and interpreting the diverse cultural heritage and agricultural history of Southern California from 1853 to 1943. Through restoration of its buildings and grounds, Rancho Camulos seeks to connect the past with the present by offering programs that will educate and enrich all audiences. We invite you to step back in time to explore this unique and quaint landmark and house museum.
