Living the Past at Jensen Alvarado Historic Ranch!
Here we have a Docent, educating children on how we may have lived in the 1880's.

We are seeking a volunteer to live in the house that is on site. The duties include but are not limited to feeding animals, hosting school tours, park clean up, being available to open facility for repairs and garbage pick up etc.

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.
