Finalize Mattei’s Designation

Mattei’s Tavern was, historically, our local transportation and hospitality hub, serving travelers venturing up or down coastal California’s stagecoach, rail, and automobile routes. As an amazingly intact historic section of Los Olivos, it remains the hub back to our history, for us and all Californians.

Mattei’s Tavern deserves to be named, officially, as the Historic Landmark most of us assumed it already was.
