Historic Ranch and 1893 Price Anniversary House
Vaquero Juan Miguel Prais ran cattle on Rancho Pismo as mayordomo before purchasing the land and settling his wife Maria Andrea Carlon and their young family into old adobes on the rancho—just as California became a state.
As American statehood settled over California, John Michael Price readopted his English name and language, established Rancho del Pismo, and founded the town of Pismo.
A visit to the old ranch grounds is a step back into history featuring windmill, orchard and farm implement garden, as well as:
- The Price Anniversary House
- Chumash Exhibit
- Pórtola trail, Anza trail, El Camino Real
- Ortega-Price Tri-Gable Adobes
- Meherin House
- Stones from the stone corrals
