First the Ohlone Indians occupied the area, then came the Spanish Padres who both took advantage of the land richness to grow crops. Then came Don Francisco Sanchez who then built the actual Sanchez Adobe structure between 1842 to 1846.


After Francisco Sanchez died, General Edward Kirkpatrick purchased the adobe. He extended and remodeled the house and in 1908, the adobe became the Hotel San Pedro. During Prohibition, it became a speakeasy with whiskey stills hidden in the nearby artichoke fields. In 1947, the County of San Mateo purchased the present five-acre Sanchez Adobe site. Restoration was completed in 1953. The San Mateo County Historical Association currently operates the site.

A $1 suggested donation with additional charges for food and crafts.
