Rancho Camulos

Penny postcard of the south veranda at Rancho Camulos reads: "Ramona's Home, Camulos Ranch, showing Century Plant in bloom, California." Probably 1910s.

Those who believe the characters in Helen Hunt Jackson's 1884 novel "Ramona" are based on the Del Valle family of Rancho Camulos would say that the upper porch shown here is where the story's Señor Felipe, ill of the fever, lay on the pallet of hide that Alessandro made for him, and that in the room at right, behind the barred window, Ramona had her little sanctuary where, when imprisoned and separated from Alessandro, she gave her soul to prayer.
