Rancho Los Cerritos
Inner Courtyard of the adobe house

Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is a beautiful property in Long Beach that includes enchanting garden areas, an authentic adobe house that is 178 years old, and offers free tours to visitors led by volunteer docents. The Rancho relies on an enthusiastic team of volunteers to communicate the history, culture, and activities of the Rancho's rich history.

We are hosting a New Volunteer Open House so that interested people can learn about the various volunteer opportunities we have available. We need house docents, garden docents, gardeners, greeters, crafters, storytellers and more!
