Description

Located in Wunderlich County Park, the Folger Estate Stable was renovated in 2010 and now houses a museum, as well as a working stable for privately-owned horses. Museum exhibits feature a timeline of local area history, the development of the Folger Coffee Company, and the importance of the horse in North American culture.

Who are the Friends?

The Friends are a group of people who are bonded together by their appreciation for Huddart and Wunderlich Parks. They are a combination of volunteers, donors, paid staff, and board members - all collaborating with the park rangers to preserve and protect these special resources.

It is easy to become part of the Friends community. Start by visiting the parks, where you will discover the fascinating natural and historical treasures of these unique areas of San Mateo County. Then find out how you can volunteer or donate to the ongoing efforts that help make these parks flourish for all who visit.

History

For many years the Stable was slowly deteriorating, with no public funds available to preserve the main building or the surrounding Carriage House, Blacksmith Barn, Dairy House, and stone walls. In 2002, the Friends formed the Folger Estate Stable Committee and, in conjunction with the San Mateo County Parks Department, began the process of renovating the stable to its original condition.

The renovation project was guided by the Construction Steering Committee, chaired by Rob Flint. Members of the committee included architect Adolph Rosekrans, Parks and Recreation Director Dave Holland, industrial designer Stephanie Scheafer, and Friends members Jill Daly, Joe Geist, Susan Green, Susan Lang, Suzanne Muller, and Bill Wraith.

The renovation of the Folger Stable began on December 1, 2008, with construction done by Gonsalves and Stronk Contractors. The project was completed in April of 2010 and the site was opened to the public the following September.

Today the beautifully renovated Folger Estate Stable is a precious historical treasure. It is still operated as a public horse-boarding facility, one of the few left on the Peninsula.

Carriage Room Museum

The original Carriage Room within the main stable has been transformed into a magnificent museum that showcases our local history, including the lumbering, farming, and great estate eras.
