Rancho Los Alamitos

November 3, 2014 — Leave a comment

Rancho Los Alamitos is listed twice 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, second, for the evolution of its significant historic landscape over time.

The site includes traces of the ancestral village such as an adobe-core ranch house ca.1800 and four acres of lush historic gardens developed during the 1920’s and 30’s.

With the opening of the Rancho Center, the film, new exhibits, and room environments that feature the landscape, the people have developed the region and the state over time.

This exceptional site reveals the early Tongva presence, the Spanish and Mexican periods, the ranching and farming era, and the imprint of 20th century development. A quintessential place for people to experience the living story of southern California, Rancho Los Alamitos is a microcosm of the region, past to present.
