Explore the unique history of the CCC-built "Keeper's Cottage" at the El Camino Real Visitors Center as a ranger presents the fascinating story of this beautiful building.

See why the First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, paid a visit to and sang the praises of this "architectural gem." The Keeper's Cottage served both as a functioning home and as a practice template for reconstructing the Spanish Colonial detail and design of Mission Espiritu Santo. Get a better understanding of the challenges faced and overcome by CCC Company 3822-V and see where the mission reconstruction began at this newly-renovated, remarkable building!
