Rancho Los Alamitos
Rancho Los Alamitos is on a 7.5 acre site which includes four acres of nationally significant historic gardens, a ranch house (1790-1948), and restored barnyard of the early 20th century working ranch.
The Rancho has a continuous history of habitation that stretches back for more than 1500 years and reflects the many people who have called it home – from the first people, the Tongva, to the Spanish and Mexican colonists, right up to the Yankee farmers of the mid-twentieth century.
Children and adults can tour the ranch house and experience nature in the lush gardens as well as visit the farm animals (horses, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and rabbits) housed in the barns area. Visitors may tour the gardens with a docent or opt for a self-guided tour. Guided tours of the Ranch house and barns area start every 30 minutes from the Rancho Center. Group and school tours are also available.
Rancho Los Alamitos is a Long Beach City Landmark and is twice listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
