The Historic Park is filled with items that are reminiscent of the active era od the Mission. The Livery Stable is filled with Buggies and carriages of the days before cars. They are well preserved and nicely displayed. The signs provide a lot of information, so it is easy to do a self guided tour of the park.
Fun, amazing incredible interesting there is plenty to see. The buildings and beautiful gardens are lovely. Families can enjoy the beauty and history .
There is just no place else that has such a gorgeous setting. Then, the well-preserved and well-furnished historic buildings give you an enchanting sense that you have gone back to the 1840s. One building houses the most complete collection of wagons, carriages, and other horse-drawn vehicles than I have seen anywhere else. However, docents are few and far between, so... 更多
The historic park includes tours of several heritage buildings on the square facing the Mission including a settler's cabin, the old hotel, the stable, the little jail, and a couple of homes. I particularly enjoyed visiting the hotel, and the Breem house. Interpretive signs told interesting stories of the area, the people who settled and built it, a notorious bandido,... 更多
What a fabulous park to take my son to for his fourth grade Mission Project. I thought it would be better to visit then just read the info off the internet. Now when he does his research it will have more meaning. It was wonderful strolling the grounds and buildings. well worth the trip. Plenty of parking on the street.... 更多
The mission was closed for a private service during our visit, so we were only able to visit the mission arcade & gift shop, walk around the park and enjoy the view of the valley. San Juan Bautista is a fun and historic little town and very much worth an afternoon to explore. Parking was difficult to find, but that... 更多
We have visited the mission and seen the buildings at San Juan Historical Park several times. This time we went to see the Christmas tree that was set up in the park area. They labeled it Community Peace Tree - but to me, its a Christmas Tree. They had dwarves also by the tree.
Not much here, but it was really cool to see a 'ghost town.' Town was very quiet when we went (a Tuesday) but the old Spanish colonial architecture had such a quaint feel Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.
We happened upon the state park by accident on the 1st Saturday of the month when they do "living history" with period dress and activities. Spent around 2 hours touring the old buildings and talking to the locals. It was fun and interesting.
An interesting variety of historic buildings, and worth the modest price of admission. I was there on the first Saturday of September (Labor Day Weekend), hoping to see living history which is provided by volunteers on the first Saturday of every month. Except for a couple of very nice women doing a bread demonstration behind the Castro/Breen adobe, there wasn't... 更多
