Where you'll be

We will tour a 54 acre part of the Hollister holdings on his favorite property. At one time being the largest land owner in California, this valley and rolling hills overlooking the ocean enticed him to build a mansion which burned down in 1890. See an 1880 Office built by him to take care of his fortune while on the ranch. The land now has avocado orchards and an equestrian facility with daily activities of riding, training and horse care.
