Leonis Adobe Museum & Plummer House

Leonis Adobe Museum & Plummer House

The Leonis Adobe Museum is a historical monument and living history museum dedicated to restoring, preserving, and sharing California ranch life as it was in the 1880s. Built in the 1870s by Miguel Leonis—the six-foot-four, French-Basque "King of Calabasas"—the Leonis Adobe was saved from demolition by the efforts of activists in the early Los Angeles preservation movement. The Monterey-style house was named Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #1 in 1962 and opened as a museum in 1966. Today, the museum welcomes visitors to step back into the world of Miguel Leonis and his Chumash-Tongva Native American wife Espiritu. Collections feature objects owned by the Leonis family, historic wagons and farm equipment, and unique archival material relating to the history of the San Fernando Valley. Visitors can feed animals authentic to the period, including merino sheep and goats, and see Percheron draft horses and longhorn cattle.
