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 eight 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.
2014 MOTA DAY ACTIVITIES:
- Guests can watch traditional woodcarving demonstrations, listen to storytellers as well as enjoy music and traditional dancing. Sew Cranky will be demonstrating vintage sewing machines and allowing guests to make small items.
- “Out of the Vault Exhibit:” a collection of handmade children’s furniture circa 1910 that includes a child’s size mantel, china cabinet, side board and a fainting couch.
- Children can play with Victorian toys, do crafts, and learn about plants and flowers in the Ford House Kitchen garden.
