Vista Lobos Community Room

This rustic facility was once the J.O. Handley Lumberyard and was purchased by the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea in the 1980’s and was renamed the J.O. Handley Lumberyard Community Room/Vista Lobos Facility.  Today it is commonly referred to as the Vista Lobos Community Room.
