Rancho Los Cerritos History


Once part of an early Spanish land grant, the 27,000 acre Rancho Los Cerritos evolved from cattle ranch to sheep ranch to private home before becoming a City museum in 1955. The current 4.7 acre site, a National and State Historic Landmark, includes an 1844 two-story Monterey-Colonial adobe and historic gardens, houses a California History Research Library and hosts many educational programs for families and youth. You are encouraged to visit. The Rancho is closed on Monday, Tuesday and all City holidays.
