Located in Los Encino State Historic Park, Rancho El Encino consists of two historic residences. The De la Osa Adobe, constructed in the 1840s, is a one story adobe ranch house built by Don Vincente de la Osa soon after he purchased the ranch. The adobe was also used as a stage stop. In 1869 the ranch was purchased by Eugene Garnier, a Basque, who constructed a two story limestone residence in 1872. Garnier developed Rancho El Encino into a sheep ranch. His masonry home was influenced by the design of rural French residences. Several outbuildings, including a "herder's hut" are part of the ranch complex.

Rancho El Encino is located at 16756 Moorpark St. in Encino. It is open 10:00am to 5:00pm Wednesday-Sunday. For further information call 818-784-4849 or visit the park's website.
