Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site
The Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is located at 4600 Virginia Road in Long Beach, northwest of the intersection of Long Beach Boulevard and San Antonio Drive.
Free public tours are offered Wednesday-Sunday from 1-5 p.m.
Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds of Rancho Los Cerritos echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern and urban society it is today.
The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s.
The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives.
Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is a public museum open for tours, programs, and events. It is owned by the City of Long Beach and operated through the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine.
