The mid-1880’s 3- drawer dresser, a furnishing owned by Kate Cravath, and which stayed in the Sikes family for years is now on display in the Children’s Room. It was donated by the descendants of Kate Sikes Cravath, a daughter of Zena and Eliza Sikes. San Dieguito River Park is grateful to the Cravath, Goulding and Goshorn families for this generous contribution to the Sikes Historic Farmhouse on February 19, 2023.
