The Simi Adobe

The Simi Adobe is the oldest structure still standing in Simi Valley.  Unfortunately, we do not know what the adobe looked like when it was first built, but we do know that it was larger than the structure that now exists.

When the Strathearn family bought this land in the late 1880s, the old adobe was already falling into disrepair.  Rather than destroying what remained of the adobe, they salvaged it, built their wood frame house onto it, and repurposed it as their kitchen and dining area.

The next stops on the tour will be the Colony Houses, which are the blue and yellow houses across from the Simi Adobe.
