Description

A Victorian revival style structure, the C.F. Lott Home was built in 1856 by “Judge” Lott, a gold-rush pioneer who helped form California’s government and started the first Citrus Exchange in California. Although now over 150 years old, only two generations have lived in this house. Much of the original furnishings are on display to help tell the story of how the well-to-do lived “out west.” The collection includes antique furnishings, paintings, rugs, textiles, clothes, silver, and glassware from the period 1849-1910. A tour of the house reveals stories of the Lott family and their importance to early California (the Judge was also a State Senator). It also retells his daughter, Cornelia’s, love story with Jesse Sank and their eventual happiness. The house contains some unusual features, including the surprise built into the fireplace and an art-deco bathroom.

Sank Park encompasses the entire city block that Judge Lott bought in 1855 for $200. The garden contains a profusion of flowers, including an outstanding hybrid rose area. The park also contains a lovely gazebo as well as many colorful trees, and a picnic area in an orange grove. Don't miss the carriage house with Jess and Cornelia's 1922 Buick. Portions of the park may be reserved for weddings and other private functions by calling (530)-538-2415.
