The Landmark Project: CHL# 548

CHL# 548 CANAL FARM INN

This original San Joaquin Valley ranch headquarters of California pioneer and cattle baron Henry Miller (1827-1916) was established in 1873. His farsighted planning and development in the 1870s of a vast gravity irrigation system, and the founding of Los Banos in 1889, provided the basis for this area’s present stability and wealth.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
