Rooted in History!

The Dominguez Rancho Adobe's Bicentennial Celebration!

We are so excited to share this momentous celebration with you all! Our historic adobe home, built in 1826 by Manuel Dominguez, will be turning 200 years-old in 2026. This home has survived war battles, earthquakes, hurricanes, and more. It is the base site for much of South Bay history. 

We plan to host a string of Bicentennial Events and launch a brand new Membership Program! This historic anniversary should be celebrated with the community, and that is our goal. We hope you will join us and check this page to stay up to date on all things Bicentennial Celebration.

Manuel Dominguez built this adobe home in 1826 at the age of 22 on his great uncle’s land of Rancho San Pedro.
