Welcome to the San Buenaventura Conservancy website. Please enjoy the histories, photos, landmarks and historic preservation tools we have gathered in our pages.

The Conservancy is working with the building owners to find someone to move the Day house to a new location and restore it. The house is located on Telephone Road just west of Kimball across from the Community Park. A qualified party who can arrange to move the Italianate farmhouse to a new site and restore or adaptively re-use it will be given ownership of the structure at no charge. The Conservancy can help with a list of qualified house movers and the history of the house. If it cannot be relocated within the next few months, the building will be demolished. Private message us at sbconservancy@mac.com if you are interested.
