Welcome to Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site!
Tucked away in the midst of a bustling city, Rancho Los Cerritos is a hidden gem in the Bixby Knolls neighborhood of Long Beach, California. We hope you enjoy your “online tour” of our historic site as you research locations for a one-of-a-kind special event.
Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is a public museum open for tours, programs and events. Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds 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 a modern, urban society. 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.
Please visit Rancho Los Cerritos’ website for more information and upcoming events.
