Mission Statement

The Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead, owned and operated by the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority, is a historic site dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the history of the settlement of the San Dieguito River Valley as experienced by the Sikes family during the period from 1869-1899.


The Sikes Adobe Farmhouse is a State Point of Historic Interest and a City of San Diego historic site that has been restored by the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority to its period of significance. Established around 1870, and featuring one of the area’s oldest adobe homes from the American era, the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead is a remarkable survivor of San Diego’s rural history and, as such, has a special role to play in preserving the legacy of old California. With the restoration, we can learn what life was like for the pioneer settlers in San Diego shortly after statehood.


We'll work with your schedule.
