Only open for private functions, as closed for extensive renovations until Dec 2018. We assume the person who reviewed the restored barns a week ago had access as part of a private trip.

The newly renovated Barns and grounds at Cooper-Molera are beautiful. Events by Classic Group hosts the events here and does the catering, and they did a phenomenal job for our event.

Many people do not know about the Californio days which were between the mission days and California statehood. Visiting this Adobe will give insights to this time.
