Deep California Roots

Historic Landmark

Santa Margarita Ranch was home to indigenous peoples for more than 10,000 years, and evidence of their existence is most notable in the stone mortars found on the ranch’s rock outcroppings.

Mission Era

The ranch was settled in the late 1700s by Spanish padres and became part of California’s famed Mission trail. Remnants of the original El Camino Real are still evident on the ranch.

Wild West

The ranch later became a Wells Fargo stage stop, and local folklore maintains that the notorious outlaw brothers Frank and Jesse James passed through the ranch in 1874 while on the run.

Working Ranch

Today, Santa Margarita Ranch remains one of California’s oldest continuously operated cattle ranches and is regarded as a cornerstone of Central Coast agritourism.
