About the The Heritage Ranch

The Heritage Ranch is home to the San Dieguito Heritage Museum which was founded in 1988.  The museum’s goal is to help preserve the history of Leucadia, Encinitas, Olivenhain, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar, and Rancho Santa Fe.

You will get the opportunity to  explore several historic homesteads, view ancient artifacts from the Kumeyaay and see old belongings once owned by early pioneers.

While you’re in the area, make sure to visit the San Diego Botanic Garden nearby!

The Heritage Ranch is open for private event rentals such as birthday parties and weddings!

Personal Experience

I was floored to learn this lovely museum was right next door to the San Diego Botanic Garden, which I have visited numerous times!  For anyone that is into the local history or just is in the mood for some old timey vibes, this is a great place to visit.

The set-up is adorable and visiting the homes really makes you feel as if you’ve been transported back 100 years!
