Willowside Ranch exhibit by Fred Roessler


There will be a photographic retrospective of Fred Roesslerís photography from 1995-2007 of historic Willowside Ranch in Pescadero. A beautiful selection of the buildings and farm equipment, animals, as well as the old cheese house and itís presses.

We will have memorabilia from the old ranch, and give visitors the opportunity to try their hand at painting a silver gelatin print with oils.

Reception Friday Oct 5, 2007 from 6-9 pm

Far from the corporate world of Silicon Valley is Willowside Ranch. Located in Pescadero, this ranch was originally started in 1870; sometime later a Swiss family named Mattei, set up a dairy farm and sold milk and cheeses.

The original pioneer home is still there with a 100-year-old Eucalyptus growing next to and through it. Sometime in 1982, a very elderly Ansel Adams drove up Stage Road and stopped to photograph the ancient eucalyptus tree that stands near the Victorian house. Adams spent some time photographing this tree and then did some work in the barns. All of the buildings from the early bunk house, to the late 1800ís 2-story Victorian home, are still standing and are now just beginning to be renovated by the current owner Judy Butler.
