Historic homes are physical reminders of Los Angeles history and allow us a glimpse of the lives of Angelenos across different time periods. These items provide a look into what life was like for families and residents in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.
The oldest home represented in this exhibit is the Rancho Los Cerritos Adobe, built in 1844 in what is now Long Beach. This residence serves as a physical reminder of the Mexican era in California. Homes built in the early 1900s are also present, with the Eugene W. Britt House built in the Georgian Colonial Revival style in 1919 and La Casa Nueva (at the Homestead Museum) whose construction was finalized1927. These representations of Los Angeles area historic homes give us the opportunity to explore local history from the comfort of our own homes.
