Rancho Las Palmas
AKA Hiram Corey House
200 River Road
Built 1891

Hiram Corey was one of the most successful local farmers and stock raisers in Monterey County in the 1890s.

Corey and his wife designed Rancho Las Palmas with the assistance of a local builder named Bassett. The house is the finest example of rural Queen Anne architecture in Monterey County. It is beautifully sited in a canyon mouth opposite the Salinas River.

The house is now situated in a gated residential community named Las Palmas Ranch and is not open to the public.
