The two Wood Ranch Barns at Strathearn Park were built in the 1940s. These barns were just two of several functioning barns located in what is now known as the Wood Ranch housing development.
When the land was being developed in the early 1980s, the Simi Valley Historical Society made the decision that the barns should be saved and that they would be a welcome addition to the historical park.
In 1982, the barns were cut into sections and moved down Madera to Strathearn Park.
After the barns were removed, the grading of the land began. The hill on which the barns had once stood became a golf course.
The large grey barn now called the 'Wood Ranch Exhibit Hall' features several displays dealing with agriculture, blacksmithing and other artifacts related to ranch life. It is also a popular venue for events and receptions. Continue to walk on the path towards the front of the park, and you’ll see the open barn. The open barn features more agricultural displays and implements used on ranches.
The next stop is the Currier Apricot Pitting Shed. It is the large structure with murals.
