Experience a unique opportunity to celebrate the season. In addition to our regular docent-led historic tours, Rancho Camulos Museum will have the 1920 del Valle Adobe open and have a special treat for you.
On Sunday, Oct. 30, from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., Rancho Camulos Museum Last Sunday at The Landmark will be presenting “Mil Y Un Fantismas / 1001 Ghosts.”
The 1850 Spanish edition of 1001 Ghosts by Alexandre Dumas will be on display.
