Welcome to Reyes Adobe

What makes the Reyes Adobe so special?

Reyes Adobe HouseBuilt in approximately 1850, Agoura Hills’ first home represents 150 years of exciting California history. This history includes the acquisition of the documented stories and artifacts from the families that have called the Reyes Adobe home over the years. The Reyes Adobe Historical Site has preserved their unique legacies to help visitors understand the political, social and economic changes that have shaped present day culture.

The story begins in 1845 when a widow with 14 children, Maria Antonia Machado, purchased the original Reyes rancho, known as Rancho Las Virgenes, from her uncle Jose Maria Dominguez. Maria Machado’s husband, Jose Jacinto Reyes, was the son of Juan Francisco Reyes who served on the famous Portola expedition. Maria and Jose Reyes’ son Jose Paulino built the adobe home in approximately 1850 during the state’s rancho period. Reyes ownership lasted into the next century. From 1916 to 1983 the property transferred to owners who shared a common interest in preserving the landmark adobe home located in the beautiful foothills beneath Ladyface Mountain.

We invite you to enjoy our historic home and its legacies. It is a cultural landmark significant to many areas of interest: California history highlighting the rancho period, oral history, and Spanish Rancho architecture. The Reyes Adobe’s hearth has drawn people from different cultures that have influenced the scenic and strategically located property along the state’s famous El Camino Real. Through restoration and research efforts, the City of Agoura Hills has created an interpretive center and museum for visitors to hear their stories for years to come.
