RANCHO LOS ALAMITOS and RANCHO LOS CERRITOS
This exceptional site reveals the early Tongva presence, the Spanish and Mexican periods, the ranching and farming era, and the imprint of 20th century development. A quintessential place for people to experience the living story of southern California, Rancho Los Alamitos is a microcosm of the region, past to present.
Los Cerritos Ranch House, also known as Rancho Los Cerritos or Casa de los Cerritos, was "the largest and most impressive adobe residence erected in southern California during the Mexican period." Los Ceritos means "the little hills" in English. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970.
