Errea House & Garden

16 October 2010

The Errea
House was built between 1870 and 1875 in what was then known as Williamsburg and what is now known as Tehachapi, California. When railroad tracks were being laid through this part of California, it was necessary to move some structures which would have been in its path. The house was relocated around 1900 to its present site on Green Street.

This post is about the Garden that is part of the Errea House Museum. The Garden is lovingly cared for by volunteers of the Tehachapi Heritage League. There is a vegetable garden with heirloom varieties you seldom see anymore. Herbs such as rosemary, lavender, and sage grace the section dedicated to culinary plants. There is a bit of whimsy and history scattered throughout the garden - a lovely place to visit.
