Wakamatsu Historical Public Tours – Saturday, April 20 & May 18

The site of the first Japanese colony in America in 1869, the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm Colony is on the National Register of Historic Places and California Registered Historical Landmark #815. This 272-acre property features Okei-san’s historic gravesite, an 1850’s farmhouse, and a turn-of-the-century barn. Rich in cultural and natural resources, the rolling landscape boasts productive farming soils, wildlife habitat, oak woodlands, ponds, and a wheelchair-accessible trail. Onsite is ARC’s native plant nursery, orchard, and giving garden.
