For decades, Lucia partnered with nearby farms to graze sheep, goats, and other livestock on the property, while maintaining a fenced garden, fruit trees, and grapevines. The property served as a home base for both the Eames family and selections from the archives and collection that they stewarded. Lucia’s dream was to share this place and its treasures, as she had selflessly done by moving the historic Eames House in Los Angeles into a nonprofit years earlier. With her passing, the Eames family embarked on a seven-year journey to realize Lucia’s dream for the Ranch. The visionary leadership of Lucia’s five children—Carla, Lucia, Byron, Eames, and Llisa—has ensured that the Ranch will remain a working farm and educational resource for generations to come.
