The Place

Sweeping Vista

Wilder Ranch has a rich blend of history and sweeping coastal landscapes. 19th century ranch buildings are surrounded by lovely flower gardens. A Mexican era adobe and traces of the earlier Ohlone Indian presence are quieter echoes of Santa Cruz history.

Breaking Waves

You can explore the history of early ranchers and farmers along the Central Coast through tours and living history demonstrations. Today, Docents dressed in period clothing help awaken your senses to a turn of the century lifestyle as they lead tours and demonstrate blacksmithing, baking, crafts and historic agricultural practices.
