The historic Old Mill and garden are beautiful testaments to the legacy of the California missions and would make a one of a kind setting for your nonprofit group event, be it the occasion of a lecture, luncheon, dinner or meeting. Unfortunately we do not rent our facility for private parties.

Today, this landmark historic building with its harmonious grounds and rich gardens welcomes event guests to connect with the past in a beautiful outdoor setting. Your guests will stroll through our native California garden to your event on the Pomegranate Patio. The patio can entertain as few as 20 or as many as 135 guests in a one of a kind early California setting.

During your event, the historic adobe building will be open for guests to explore the building, learn about its history and view the most recent California Art Club exhibition in the Mill’s Gallery.
