Estrella Adobe Church California State Historical Landmark No. 542
The Estrella Adobe Church was the first Protestant church in northern San Luis Obispo County. It was built in 1878 by early pioneers who contributed labor and time for its construction. The church prospered for a few years and then fell into disuse, finally crumbling to ruins.
The church was restored by the History and Landmarks Committee of the Paso Robles Women’s Club. It was rededicated in 1952 in memory of those pioneers on the Estrella Plains who built the church and worshipped there. Memorial services are held in May of each year by the Friends of the Adobes, who have had the responsibility of the church’s care and preservation since 1968.
The historic adobe church is available for weddings, memorial services, christenings, or musical events. With seating for 75 people and lighted with kerosene lamps mounted on the adobe walls, this is truly a unique site. A reed organ is on premises. There are no facilities (plumbing, electrical or water.)
