About this activity

Ranco Los Alamitos is an amazing step back in time - right in Long Beach!

It's also been twice listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so it's certainly set to be a great learning experience for the whole family.

Rancho Los Alamitos was registered the first time as a sacred Tongva village of Povuu-ngna, which was actually the traditional birthplace of the native people who lived in the Los Angeles Basin. Then, it was registered again for it's significance on the landscape across history. 

Located on the site there are actually traced of an ancestral village, as well as a ranch house that dates all the way to the 1800s. There are even four acres of lush amazing gardens which was developed nearly a century ago!

The Rancho Center is a great place to start your adventure through history, with a film on the area, as well as new exhibits that will take you through the landscape, and people who have shaped the area over time. 

It's an amazing insight into the stories of the people of southern California - from the Tongva presence, to the Spanish and Mexican eras, through the farming and ranching era right through to modern development. 

Every 30 minutes you can grab a guided tour through the Ranch House, before exploring the gardens and barn areas.

They even have some fun and educational events, from BBQs and live music evenings, to conservation talks.

History comes to life in Long Beach!
