photo - Rancho de Guajome AdobeRancho Guajome hacienda depicts a unique example of Anglo-Hispanic architecture built on an original Mexican land grant. Distinguished as a National Historic Landmark for its contribution to our nation's history, the rambling twenty-room adobe ranch house, built with huge profits from the cattle boom of the 1850's, bustled in its heyday with extravagant fiestas, lively rodeos, and constant visitors. Noted author Helen Hunt Jackson stayed at Guajome while she gathered material for her famous novel Ramona. Guajome County Park also offers a rich riparian area, marshes, spring-fed lakes, picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and camping.


Rancho Guajome was a focal point of social life in San Diego in the late 1800s, and their parties drew people from all over Southern California. We want to rekindle the spirit of this magnificent rancho and re-establish its role as a centerpiece in the culture of Southern California.
