Rancho Los Alamitos is a place for all time, twice listed on the National Register of Historic Places - once as the sacred Tongva village of Povuu'ngna, the traditional birthplace of the native people of the Los Angeles Basin and for its significant historic landscape.
The 7.5 acre site includes traces of the ancestral village, an adobe-core ranch house ca. 1800, four acres of historic gardens, and the working ranch barnyard of the early-mid 20th century. Today the new exhibition in the Rancho Center connects 21st century visitors to the powerful story of the Rancho within the region and the state.
Rancho Los Alamitos is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Guided tours of the Ranch House and Barns Area begin at The Rancho Center every thirty minutes, with the first tour at 1:00 p.m. and the last at 4:00 p.m. Reservations are not required. Admission is free.
