The Bates Ranch House was privileged to be on the Carpinteria Home and Garden Tour last April. Valerie Powdrell , our site liaison, did a terrific job coordinating all planning. Her husband, David, took professional photographs of the property, an unexpected and welcome bonus. Many of these pictures are now featured on our website.
At a later date, David Powdrell submitted this article and photographs to Edhat, a site he contributes to regularly. You can see the full article here. Thank you to Valerie and David for a job well done!
