LEO CARRILLO RANCH

(RANCHO DE LOS KIOTES)


Between 1937 and 1940, these adobe and wood buildings were built by actor Leo Carrillo as a retreat, working ranch, and tribute to old California culture and architecture. The Leo Carrillo Ranch, with its Flying ‘LC’ brand, originally covered 2,538 acres and was frequented by Carrillo and his friends until 1960. Leo Carrillo was a strong, positive, and well-loved role model who sought to celebrate California’s early Spanish heritage, through a life of good deeds and charitable causes.
