California State Parks strives to preserve and protect valuable cultural resources throughout the state—which includes both the historic structures and the priceless art collections within this historic Californian estate.

The curatorial staff works with expert conservators to preserve countless works of art, by using state-of-the-art methods and meticulous attention to detail.
