Folger Stable Exterior_0.jpg

Originally belonging to the Folger family (of Folgers Coffee fame) this estate was used as a warm country getaway from San Francisco's cold summers. In 2010 the Folger Stable and surrounding buildings opened to the public after extensive renovations. The site remains an enchanting example of the bygone "great estates" era.
