Rancho Los Alamitos Historic Site

Rancho Los Alamitos LogoRancho Los Alamitos, the “Ranch of the Little Cottonwoods,” is a Long Beach City Landmark and is twice listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 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. The 7½-acre site includes four acres of nationally significant historic gardens, a ranch house (1790-1933), and a restored barnyard of the early 20th-century working ranch.

 

Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site

Rancho Los Cerritos LogoThe historic Rancho Los Cerritos building dates from prior to 1844 when John Temple constructed a single-story ranch building after marrying an heir of the Nieto family, the original recipients of the land grant in 1784. The mission of Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is to restore and preserve the ranch house structure and grounds; collect appropriate resources; and interpret the relationship of the Rancho’s diverse peoples, from the period before Spanish settlement when Native Americans controlled the land, through the development of the Long Beach area, to the present day. This is accomplished through a broad spectrum of educational programs, exhibits, and publications designed to provide local residents, students, and other visitors with an understanding of the forces that shaped this region.
