Step back into an early era of Huntington Beach history at the city's oldest residence, the Newland House Museum. Though moved from its original location, the former home is decorated with period furnishings and artifacts.
Built in 1898 by local pioneers William and Mary Newland and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the house actually predates the city's founding. It was the heart of a productive farm where the Newlands grew lima beans, sugar beets, celery, and peppers on 500 acres of onetime swampland.
Located at 19820 Beach Boulevard, the Newland House Museum is maintained by the Huntington Beach Historical Society and open to the public on the first and third weekend of the month from noon to 4 pm. Docents are on hand to answer any questions about the history of the home and the family who lived there. Admission is $2 per adult and $1 per child. Special exhibits may have an additional cost. For more information, call 714-962-5777. Please note the museum is closed on major holidays and rainy days.
