Tickets are $35 for the general public.
Experience a rare event, a stagecoach ride through history Only such stagecoach event in the country that rides on its original Overland trail Meet Sioux Munyon one of the only women stagecoach drivers in the country!
The adventure begins at the historic Warner-Carrillo Ranch House museum, where the long and multilayered history is there to be discovered. Built in 1857, the ranch house served as the Butterfield Stage stop along the route that transported thousands of passengers across the United States years prior to the Civil War as California's first regular overland stage connection with St. Louis.
Visitors will learn the story of the emigrant trail, the Overland Stage, and the prominent ranching history of the area.
Fall is a beautiful time in the backcountry so come and enjoy this unique, one-of-a-kind experience. The journey along the original trail will take approximately 15 minutes round-trip and includes a guided tour of the ranch house before or after each stage ride, and light refreshments of lemonade and cookies.
Live entertainment will include the Jugless Jug Band, folk duo Nathan & Jessie, the Hole in the Wall Gang, and the Victorian Rose Tea Ladies. SOHO will once again raffle a quilt handmade especially for this event by local quilter Nan Rebik, who will also be providing demonstrations on how quilts are made and tied.
Visitors may also tour just the ranch house the day of the event and enjoy the fun. Cost is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors 65 and older, and $3 for children 12 and under. Saturday, November 14, 2021 · 12-4pm
