Filoli Historic House and Garden

Welcome to Filoli Historic House and Garden! The estate was built in 1915 and the gardens were later created in 1937. Beginning in 1975, Filoli was in historic preservation and open to visitors. Nearly 50 years later, people from all over the country continue to visit the house and the nearby gardens.
