  • Any excuse to maintain an old building is a good excuse. California has so few old buildings - take a few minutes to walk around in this one.

  • This historical site, built in 1840 is a place Robert Louis Stevenson stayed and did writing. The building was closed and tours don't appear to be scheduled, you can explore the grounds and peer through the windows. To enter the backyard garden you go through an opening (unmarked in front of the building). It's worth a quick stroll if you're interested in a historic site.
  • Charming building where Robert Louis Stevenson lived for three and a half months in 1879. There’s a lovely, quiet garden in the back that’s great for a peaceful sit down. The major downside is that the building is open only April through October, that too only on Saturdays, and that too only 1-4pm. Nevertheless, worth a visit if you love Stevenson and wish to have a blissful hour in a nice backyard garden.
