A Rich History

Initially established in 1894, the expansive 120-acre Rincon Creek Ranch holds a rich historical past. The property served as a vital stagecoach stop for travelers. It was later transformed into a retreat, hosting Hollywood luminaries and welcoming U.S. Presidents Hoover and Roosevelt. Tragically, the entire property, along with its structures, succumbed to the devastating 2017 Thomas Fire.
