Garden tours are offered at 2:30 p.m. every Saturday & Sunday, and house tours are available Wednesday through Sunday from 1-5 p.m. The upcoming Creation Station workshops include “Lovely Lavender” on March 2.; “Cool Blues” on April 6; “Sunny Yellow” on May 4; and “Rainbow Surprise” on June 1.
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 the modern and urban society it is today. 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. It is owned by the City of Long Beach and operated through the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine.
