Just off Interstate 80 adjacent to Lagoon Valley Park
The Peña Adobe Historical Society welcomes Solano County Sheriff’s Posse! The Solano County Sheriff’s Posse has enjoyed a long-standing tradition of service with the Sheriff’s Office since 1947. Comprised of citizens who volunteer their time in the service of their community, each year members of the Sheriff’s Posse contribute thousands of hours of their time, the use of their horses and their equipment in support of the Sheriff’s Office.
Sustainable Solano, along with various other local nonprofits, will be there to answer questions and educate about events, news and projects happening in Vacaville! Learn the important role horses played when the Peña and Vaca families were raising cattle on their ranch on what was to become the city of Vacaville.
Park docents will be available to lead tours of the Peña Adobe, California historical landmark #534 and built by the Peña family in 1842. Stop in the adjacent Mowers-Goheen Museum and view a woolly mammoth bone, period clothing and local artifacts found during the Peña Adobe restoration.
This event is free, there is no admission charge for the historic Peña Adobe Park or entrance fee to the Adobe or Museum. Dogs are allowed on leashes.
