Fantastic! It’s well worth a visit. Thanks, Claycord. I now have another place I can afford to take my grandson.

Cool. Haven’t been there in awhile, maybe we’ll go today.

I will revisit! I usually do not spend enough time there! Thank you Claycord for the heads up! I am surprised that they do not have an admission fee!

Just got back from taking my mom to the Galindo house and the Muir house. It was very informative and we learned a lot . Mom got tired so we’ll have to go back and visit the Martinez Adobe. A pleasant day of learning.
