Mission Statement

The Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum creates advocates of history through the stories of greater Los Angeles.

Description

The Homestead Museum features the Workman House, a Victorian-era country house constructed around an 1840s adobe; La Casa Nueva, a 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival Mansion noted for its architectural crafts; and El Campo Santo, one of the oldest private cemeteries in the region. Tours of the houses are guided, while tours of El Campo Santo are self-guided.

Owned and maintained by the City of Industry, the six-acre historic site is still undergoing restoration. While the cemetery and La Casa Nueva are fully restored, the unrestored interior of the Workman House serves as a laboratory, where visitors get the opportunity to see how the house has evolved over 160 years.

Free, guided tours are offered Wednesdays through Sundays, at 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. Spanish only tours are given the second Sunday of each month at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Group tours for 10 or more people are available seven days a week by appointment. Visitors with special needs can be accommodated with at least 72 hours notice.
