Built by retired sea-captain Cornelius Jensen and his wife Mercedes Alvarado in the early 1870s, today this historic ranch preserves the rhythm of farm life from a time before even citrus was king. Now just 30-acres of what was once an expansive ranch, Riverside County has set aside an oasis of historic farmland in the ever-growing city of Jurupa Valley. Visitors to our site can wander through our orchards, feed our resident farm animals, or just walk through the historic ranch house.
Move in will be scheduled for the middle of December.
To acquire, protect, develop, manage, and interpret for the inspiration, us and enjoyment of all people, a well-balanced system of park related places of outstanding scenic, recreational, and historic importance.
