Sanchez Adobe School Program

As students are attending school virtually, the San Mateo County Historical Association is offering online school programs starting October 1, 2020.

Experience life on a Californio rancho in this virtual program. Before the program time, students will view a pre-recorded video tour of the Sanchez Adobe. Then, students will engage in a docent-led online presentation where they will be introduced to the people who lived at the site which was an Ohlone village, a Spanish mission outpost and a Mexican rancho. An optional hands-on activity, designing a wire “brand” (which includes a package of Model Magic for stamping), is also available for an additional fee.

• Link to pre-recorded tour will be mailed after payment is received.
