Johnston House 50th Jubilee

The Johnston House Foundation will be celebrating their 50th Jubilee Anniversary on Saturday, September 17, 2022, 11:00AM to 5:00PM. The Johnston House will be open for historical tours by their period costumed docents. An abundant faire of wines and cheeses will also be offered at no cost. Local Coastside Artists will be setting up tents outside to join in the festivities. “We want to thank the community for all their years of support by giving them a party to celebrate this most special historical home,” said President of the Board, John Ryan.

The Johnston House Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit), founded in September of 1972, presides over the “salt box” home built by 49er pioneer, James Johnston in 1853 and his wife Petra Maria de Jara. The foundation rebuilt the fallen-down historic house over the years of 1976 to 1995. They then, authentically furnished it with many of the original pieces. The foundation keeps this historic house in good condition via grants, fundraisers, and a lot of hard work from the Board.

Paul Bettencourt , renowned for his high quality and detailed doll houses, has created an exquisite hand built dollhouse for this 50th anniversary celebration to be raffled. (Valued at $1000. The doll house measure 31" wide x 18" deep x 25" high). The house will be on display at the Johnston House no later than Sept. 10th. Following the September 17th celebration, it will be on display at a location to be announced during the month of October. The drawing will be on November 1st. This will be an in-person only raffle, meaning one has to be either at the Johnston House or visit the to be confirmed location to fill out an entry form. Raffle tickets are $5.00 each or 5 tickets for $20.00. In both cases, the dollhouse will be present for entrants to view.

The Coastside Artists will be joining in the festivities with tents near the house filled with fabulous Coastside inspired art and handmade products. Some of the participating artists are Loma Mar Fire Creek Forge, Randall Reid Pottery, Coastside Home Goods, Terri Brazil-Carroll glass fusion, Layers of Intention, Spread The Love, Posh Pumpkins, and Reika Binsfield. Start your Christmas shopping early with some unique, one of a kind gifts. And, to delight our pallets, Patti Schwartz, Corporate Catering will be catering the event with delicious cheese and vegetable arrangements to compliment the various hand selected wines.

Bring your family for a truly unique historical experience. The Johnston House Foundation has partnered with the City of Half Moon Bay and Mid-Peninsula Open Space to provide the public with a valuable resource for the Coastside. Board members of the Johnston House Foundation include; John Ryan, President, Mary Bettencourt, Vice President, Lauren Goodrich, Treasurer, Jack McHugh, Cameron Palmer, Ann Mori, Barbara Von Glahn, and Jan Gray.
