Heritage Square


3800 Homer Street, Los Angeles

Established in 1969, this living history museum tells the story of the development of Southern California – from its earliest days as a small pueblo to the bustling metropolis that over 3 million Southern Californians call home today. Through guided tours of nine historic structures and an ever-changing array of exhibits and special events, Heritage Square transports guests back in time to an era when electricity was a novelty, a trip to the beach was often a full-weekend activity, and manners were distinctly different from those of today. 


  • Guests can watch traditional blacksmithing demonstrations from Adam’s Forge.
  • Ragtime pianist Galen Wilkes will perform.
  • Costume docents will be on hand at the historical structures on site.
  • View a sneak preview of Family Fashion at Home, an upcoming exhibition on Victorian Era fashion with clothing curated from the collection of Barbara MacArthur and Teresa Benson. See how families of the Heritage Square Homes dressed when they were entertaining, having dinner or working.
  • Children can play with Victorian toys, do crafts, and learn about plants and flowers in the Ford House Kitchen garden.
  • “Pump & Splash” will be onsite for water fun.
