The Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum Field Trip

The Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum Field Trip

Join Celebration Education at The Homestead Museum in the City of Industry for a special children's program called "Ain't We Got Fun!" and a wonderful tour of the museum's historic houses.
The “Ain't We Got Fun” program introduces children ages 2-12 to the history of the 1840s, 1870s, and 1920s by focusing on what children would have done for fun during these decades. The program includes a visit to the museum’s historic houses with a focus on popular forms of entertainment, an 1870s game, and a craft.
The Homestead Museum is a unique 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. http://www.homesteadmuseum.org/
