Join us on this history and nature walk to view the venerable Mills Barn, built in the 1860’s in the style of an English Lake County Bank Barn, the only one of its type in California. This site is now on a State Park and the Mills Barn is maintained in a condition of “arrested decay”. This historic structure dates back to the late 1860’s and was originally 200 feet in length and capable of housing 100 dairy cows.

The tour is Saturday, Nov 13 at 10am. From the intersection of Highways 1 and 92, go south on Highway 1 about 1.2 miles. Turn left (east) off Highway 1 onto Higgins-Purisma Road. Stay on this road for just over 1-1/2 miles to the park entrance on the left. The Greenbelt Alliance guide will have a sign at the entrance.
