Rancho Los Alamitos, the “Ranch of the Little Cottonwoods,” is a Long Beach City Landmark and is twice listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Rancho has a continuous history that stretches back for more than 1500 years and reflects the many people who have called it home – from the first people, the Tongva native American people, to the farmers of the mid-twentieth century. The 7½-acre site includes four acres of nationally significant historic gardens, a ranch house (1790-1948), and restored barnyard of the early 20th century working ranch. Read more >

Children and adults alike are enlightened and delighted when touring the ranch house and interpretive center, communing with nature in the lush gardens and visiting with the farm animals (horses, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and rabbits) housed in the barns area. The Rancho is open to the public from Wednesday-Sunday, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. (Guests enter at the Bixby Hill residential security gate at Anaheim and Palo Verde.) Guided tours of the Ranch house and Barns Area start every 30 minutes from the Rancho Center with the last tour beginning at 4:00 pm. Visitors may tour the gardens with a docent or opt for a self-guided tour. Admission and parking are free.

Restoration of the Rancho
The Rancho has undergone extensive restoration over the years under the management of the Rancho Los Alamitos Foundation. The Grand Opening of the Rancho Center and Barns Area in 2012 was a culmination of the comprehensive Master Plan for the restoration, preservation and interpretation of the site, and begins a new chapter of experiences at Rancho Los Alamitos.
