AAA Editor Notes
Ardenwood Historic Farm is at 34600 Ardenwood Blvd., .2 mi. n. of SR 84. This 205-acre living-history park depicts farm life from the 1870s to the 1920s. On the grounds of the complex, which is also a working farm, is the Victorian-style Patterson House. Cows, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens and turkeys live on the farm, and there also is an old-fashioned garden and a picnic area. The farm's orchards, fields and groves are a haven for some 100 species of birds, including hummingbirds, bluebirds, woodpeckers and hawks.

Horse-drawn railcar rides, a blacksmith demonstration and 40-minute guided house tours are offered from the beginning of April until late November; the grounds are open year-round. The house is open for Christmas tours in early December.

Dogs are not permitted on the grounds. Bicycles, Frisbees, and footballs and soccer balls are prohibited.
