The Historic Rios-Caledonia Adobe was built in 1835 just south of the San Miguel Mission as a home for the overseer of Mission lands. It is located on the old mission trail between San Francisco and Los Angeles and is eight miles north of Paso Robles. This historic site is well preserved with the original Inn and Stagecoach stop now a museum. A building added in 1930 is now a unique history research library. The grounds are beautifully maintained by San Luis Obispo County Parks with picnic sites and restrooms available. It is now a California Historical Landmark (#936) and also listed on the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places (#71000190).
Friends of the Adobes (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) is proud to support the ongoing efforts of the National Parks Service and San Luis Obispo County Parks to help protect our historic resources. A dedicated group of volunteers are instrumental in maintaining the museum, gift shop, website and research library and also help visitors get the most out of their experience when they visit this historical site.
