Went here with my son as a Saturday outing agile ago. I enjoy learning about local history and this place really qualifies.

A growing gem in LA. The history of this land, the ranch, the a family and the growth of CA is told in this story. I cannot post a link but google this place. Admission is free but donations accepted - and they need them.

We went to have a look at the historic ranch today, not sure what to expect. The ranch is inside a private residential area. Free parking and free entry! There are lovely volunteers giving guided tours who have a great knowledge of the ranch's history, our guide was Jeanette. The old Adobe ranch house and gardens are lovely and the restoration has been beautifully done. Donations are accepted at the visitor centre and there is a small gift shop. Definitely worth a visit.

Lived in LA all my life and had never heard of this place. Completely free entrance, but donations are welcome. Beautiful gardens. Old farm equipment and barn with horses, chickens, etc. You can tour the original house on the property and learn about the family who lived there. The tour guide also went over a lot of California history - very interesting! We will definitely be returning!
