Dallidet Adobe and Gardens Renovations

For History Center of San Luis Obispo County

In 2009, the Hind Foundation granted $55,000 to the History Center of San Luis Obispo County for the restoration, repairs, and upgrades of the Adobe to keep it at more stable and comfortable temperatures for visitors and to better preserve the museum's artifacts. Designated California Historical Landmark #720, the 1850’s Adobe was home to Pierre Hypolite Dallidet, his wife Maria Ascension Salazar, and their seven children. The Dallidet Adobe was acquired by the San Luis Obispo County Historical Society in 1953 from Paul Dallidet, youngest son of Pierre and Ascención.

Noteworthy Outcomes

•    Continued Education
Renovations like this allow the facility to remain open to the public for educational tours, events, and weddings, preserving our past through continued education.
