Tesoro Adobe Historic Park Santa Clarita

Welcome to Tesoro Adobe Historic Park

Where nature meets history…

Tesoro Adobe Historic Park was home to two renowned families in California, the Careys, and the Cloughertys. Harry Carey was a famous western actor in the early 1900s. Harry Carey is one of IMDb’s top 20 silent film stars of all time and a widely regarded and influential filmmaker of his generation.

The Clougherty’s are known as the West Coasts’ leading pork packer, making products sold under the Farmer John brand name. These products include the extra-long Dodger Dogs, once sold at Dodger Stadium and were an iconic baseball snack.
