“Impressive Restorations”

Stagecoach Inn Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed March 5, 2018

Remarkable replica of earliest major structures in the area. The Union Hotel was a major stopping place for stagecoach passengers riding between Los Angeles and Ventura. This was a difficult journey in the late 19th century. Imagine going up or down the Conejo Grade in one of these. The hotel is two stories with a number of rooms upstairs, which contain many historical relics of the area. The downstairs has impressive (large) parlor and dining room. You can spend an hour here. Tours are docent led. But that's not all. There is a one room school house with a bell tower (and a bell you can ring), a small blacksmith's shop, and a carriage house with two good examples of stagecoaches. I though that was going to be the end of the tour but there're more. Follow the trail down the hill from there to find a replica of the original resident (Newbury), an adobe, and a Chumash hut. We spent about an hour and a half there, but could have stayed longer.

The docents were very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was very well organized and we learned a lot about the local Chumash Indians. Overall, it was a lovely experience.

This surprisingly complete museum complex includes a main building filled with 19th and early 20th century memorabilia, several outbuildings with stagecoaches, Indian village, adobe house, and school. The docents were all wonderfully informed and engaging.

The Stagecoach Inn Museum is a local gem. Although it is a replica (the original burned down), the authenticity comes through. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. An enjoyable way to spend a coup,e of hours.

A historical museum with replicated buildings of the Grand Union Hotel, Timber school and Newbury House.
Leaned much history about the city and the origin of the name “Newbury Park”.
The volunteered guides are very nice and willing to share their knowledge about the places. One of them baked the cookies with the recipe back in 1912. She also gave us a recipe of the cookies.
An interesting place and a relaxing place to explore and to take a walk.
