Bancroft Ranch House

Bancroft Ranch House Museum

Built in 1863, the Bancroft Ranch House museum contains memorabilia of Spring Valley history and artifacts from a time when only American Indians inhabited the area. It is the first Anglo-American structure in Spring Valley and was built by Augustus Ensworth out of timbers salvaged from a shipwreck in San Diego Bay. Upon Enworth's death, the property was sold to Rufus King Porter, son of the founder of Scientific American. Porter later sold the property to historian Hubert Howe Bancroft in 1885. Bancroft built a more comfortable home up the hill from the adobe ranch house and a rock school house for his children, now located across the street. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1962.
