FALLBROOK LANDMARK BARN
This landmark livestock barn, circa 1895, is set alongside the Old Myrtle Creek. Crafted with square nails and round timbers, this barn is the oldest original structure on the grounds. The barn’s red color is actually derived from the original settlers who treated the wood planking with a mixture of linseed oil and rust from old farm equipment as a wood preservative. Today the Fallbrook Landmark Barn stands as a landmark icon and a tribute to Fallbrook’s rich heritage.

This Landmark Farm House, circa 1899, was an original livestock homestead in Fallbrook’s Myrtle Creek Valley. Settlers raised the barn and resided with their livestock while they constructed the Fallbrook Farm House. The Fallbrook Farm House is heated by a Ben Franklin wood-burning stove and lit by oil lanterns. The house has a large stone cistern located under what is now the back porch and was used for years as the primary water supply for drinking water. The house features a hand-dug dry storage cellar containing walls with remnants of vintage wine bottle labels tacked on the stone by settlers past. Visit the Myrtle Creek Farmhouse Gift Shop and discover items you will love for your home and garden. Open Wednesday to Monday from 10 am to 5 pm.

THE OLD MYRTLE CREEK
The Old Myrtle Creek is fed by several natural running springs. This clear running stream is flowing all four seasons and runs under two wooden bridges along giant native oak trees by the Fallbrook Landmark Barn and feeds the lily pond that can be viewed from the patio of Café Bloom. Myrtle Creek’s gardens are fed by hand-dug deep water wells that measure over 130 feet below the ground and draw from horizontal shafts.
THE CARRIAGE HOUSE
The Carriage House features a native granite stone foundation that dates back to the early 1900s. Its hayloft was used to keep livestock feed off the ground and still allow for livestock animals to live inside. It was later used to store wagons, buggies and farm equipment.
THE PLANTATION HOUSE
The Sherman House was crafted based on an original architectural drawing of a 1840s Atlanta Georgia Plantation House. The Sherman family are the current owners of Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens and are descendants of General William Tecumseh Sherman family, General Sherman was nicknamed “Uncle Billy” by his Union Army troops and is famous for his fight for the right of “freedom for all” in the American Civil War of the 1860s. The Sherman House features three red clay brick wood-burning fireplaces, lath and plaster construction, redwood ship-lap siding and a charming southern-style porch that wraps around the first story, encouraging guests to gather there.
