Charles Lummis was sort of a John Muir of the Southwest. Hired by the Los Angeles Times over 100 years ago, he walked from Ohio to Los Angeles, reporting along the way. A friend of Theodore Roosevelt, he built this house out of local stones with walls so thick it has withstood numerous earthquakes in the last 100 years. Open on weekends at noon; combine your visit with the nearby Southwest Museum founded by Lummis, and Heritage Square (unrelated to Lummis) where historic houses from the area have been moved and are slowly being restored. .
