The Red Barn.
While you are here, you may want to visit the nearby historic "Red Barn"
with its interesting narative kiosk display and bronze equestrian sculptures.

From the Muybridge plaque, go West on Electioneer Drive past the tennis courts,
follow it around to the left as it becomes Fremont Road. The Barn is straight ahead
a short distance.
