Fodor's Southern California 2014
Heritage Square Museum
Heritage Square Museum Review
Looking like a prop street set up by a film studio, Heritage Square sticks out like a row of bright dollhouses in the modest Highland Park neighborhood. Five 19th-century residences, a train station, a church, a carriage barn, and a 1909 boxcar that was originally part of the Southern Pacific Railroad, all built between the Civil War and World War I, were moved to this small park from various locations in southern California to save them from the wrecking ball. Docents dressed in period costume lead visitors through the lavish homes, giving an informative picture of what life in Los Angeles was like a century ago. Don't miss the unique 1893 Octagon House, one of just a handful of its kind built in California; a wraparound veranda modeled after the original was added in 2009. Guided tours are available for $10. They are also open on most holiday Mondays.
