Cute gardens. Docents were very friendly and knowledgeable, had a great tour of the Adobe house and tried veggies from the gardens. Plenty of places for a relaxing seat in the shade.

Dallidet Adobe and Gardens offers a real slice of history. There are historical land maps showing the original area and how the creek helped form the land divisions. The rooms are authentically preserved. The grounds are delightful to sit in.

Not terribly large and only open on Fridays and Sundays, this is a beautiful garden and small original Adobe house. Friendly and informative docents. They had noon talk in the garden the day I visited about drought-tolerant plants.

Looks like it was a beautiful place to visit. I checked the website in November and did not notice that it was closed in December. Nice walk over to see it through the gate.

We had a private tour of the adobe and gardens led by staff from the historical society. Very interesting history of a middle class family from the mid 1800s to early 1900s who occupied this building in the center of town. Well worth the $10...More
