The Strathearn House

The structure in the middle of Strathearn Park is the Strathearn House/Simi Adobe. It is a combination of the Rancho and pioneer eras.  This structure was not moved here...it was built here.

The white wood frame residence at the front, which you are looking at, is the "Victorian" portion of the structure, also referred to as Strathearn House.  It is Stick Eastlake style, which was popular at the time it was built in 1892 or 1893.

Take a look to your right.  The windmill that you see near the Simi Store was originally located on the Strathearn ‘Middle Ranch’ which was in Moorpark, or a bit north of Moorpark. It was donated by Bruce Strathearn in 1996 and put up at Strathearn Historical Park in 1997.

The next part of this audio tour will tell you more about the Strathearn Family, who owned the land and the house from the late 1800s until 1968.
