OHP description:

Also known as La Paz, the 187 acre property is significant for its association with Cesar E. Chavez, considered one of the most important Latino leaders in the United States. The La Paz property was purchased in 1970 to serve as Chavez's residence and the headquarters of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW), the agricultural labor union Chavez helped found and lead. Under Chavez's leadership, the UFW secured unprecedented gains, including the passage of the first law in the continental United States recognizing agricultural laborers' collective bargaining rights. La Paz includes the burial site of Cesar Chavez and his wife Helen Fabela Chavez.
