Take a bucolic trip back to the 19th century in historic Burleigh Murray Ranch State Park. We’ll amble on an old ranch road alongside Mills Creek to the venerable Mills Dairy Barn.

Built during the 1860s in the style of an English lake country bank barn, the Mills Barn is the only building of its architectural style in California.
