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.

- For the “Hidden in Plain Sight” exhibit, Heritage Square encourages visitors to find the gramophone in the Shaw House.
