The Homestead Museum is a place to explore the history of the Los Angeles region from 1830 to 1930 in hopes of better understanding the past and people’s ability to shape history.
The six-acre site features the Workman House, an 1870s country home constructed around an 1840s adobe built by William and Nicolasa Workman; La Casa Nueva, a 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival mansion noted for its architectural crafts, built by the Workmans’ grandson Walter Temple and his wife, Laura; and El Campo Santo, one of the region’s oldest private cemeteries, containing the remains of Pío Pico, the last governor of Mexican California, and many other prominent pioneer families.
