Guy B. Woodward Museum, California

The next time you're in San Diego, I highly recommend a drive out to Ramona to see the Guy B. Woodward Museum, a fascinating collection of artifacts that reflect the area's colorful Old West history.

The museum is actually a complex of buildings that includes the lovely Verlaque House, a rare 1866 adobe French provincial home that's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We also saw beautiful vintage quilts… more than 250 dresses and accessories… antique tools, farm machinery and dairy equipment… old buggies and wagons… even a homemade “RV” mounted on the back of a 1927 Chevrolet truck!

Filled with antique shops, charming Ramona is where State Highways 67 and 78 meet, about 35 miles northeast of downtown San Diego.

The Woodward Museum (645 Main St.) is open afternoons Thursday through Sunday and other times by appointment; closed in September.
