The historic Simi Adobe–Strathearn House served as the headquarters of Rancho Simi, also known as Rancho San José de Nuestra Senora de Altagracia y Simi, one of the land grants in Alta California by the Spanish government. The name derives from Shimiji, the name of the Chumash village here before the Spanish. Rancho Simi was the earliest Spanish colonial land grant within Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. At 113,000 acres, Rancho Simi was one of the state's largest land grants.The headquarters of the rancho served as the home of Robert P. Strathearn, built in 1892–93. The home remained in the Strathearn family until 1969, when the dwelling and 5.85 acres of surrounding land were donated to the Simi Valley Recreation and Park District. Two rooms of original adobe remain, now located in Robert P. Strathearn Historical Park in Simi Valley, California, which have been designated a California Historical Landmark and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
