Homestead Museum Free Public Tours Friday

Free Public Tours Friday at Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum - see INFO below. The history of the site begins with William and Nicolasa Workman, who emigrated to the area from Taos, New Mexico, in 1841, while this land was still part of Mexico. The Workmans quickly established themselves as cattle ranchers, but after a series of floods and droughts, the family began growing wheat and grapes for wine production. They built a modest adobe house, which they remodeled twice. Its current appearance reflects the most dramatic changes that were completed by 1870. Unfortunately, a family owned bank led to the loss of most of the family's wealth and land by the turn of the century. More Info below.
