Discover the 'Luck o' the Castros.'
A single choice can change the course of history. The Castro Adobe could have crumbled at a number of points in the last 160 years, but enough of those choices kept this one-of-a-kind family home standing. Is it luck?
Join State Parks interpreter Joseph Carr Ritchie for this easy guided walk to hear the stories of the Pajaro Valley’s past, 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 19. See how the Castro Adobe has survived changes of nationality and ownership, occasional neglect and frequent remodeling, and even major earthquakes.
Admission is free, though donations are gratefully accepted. Parking is limited; carpooling is encouraged. This new State Historic Park is an active construction site, and is open only during scheduled events. The Castro Adobe is at 184 Old Adobe Road, Watsonville. Learn more online.
