Map & Directions

Built in 1870, the Guthrie-Bianchini House is one of Cambria’s oldest homes. Sitting on the corner of Burton Drive and Center Street in Cambria’s East Village, the house is now home to Cambria’s Historical Museum. It was restored by the Cambria Historical Society and opened in December 2008.

This exciting place of discovery has a rich history and has hosted over 20,000 visitors since it opened as a museum in December 2008. The museum holds regular exhibits and tours, and is a fun spot to visit during the Cambria Scarecrow/Harvest Festival every year.

The museum itself is a great place to host special events from meetings to family reunions and birthday parties. The restored Victorian home and spacious garden can accommodate many guests. For more information, e-mail



Highway Closures

Highway 1 Now Open to Overnight Traffic

If you're heading to the Central Coast, be sure to be mindful of the stretch of Highway 1, 21 miles north of Cambria. Caltrans is busy with a major construction project to make traveling along the stunning Pacific Coast Highway a safer journey.

Highway 1 between Ragged Point and Gorda will no longer be closed overnight, but daytime roadwork will continue Monday through Friday from 7 am to 5 pm. Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control via a temporary traffic signal 24/7. Travelers can expect traffic delays between 5-10 minutes.

Additional overnight road closures of Highway 1 may be scheduled prior to the completion of the project in 2017, but none are planned at this time. For the latest road closure information visit the Caltrans website here here.
