Welcome to The Huntington, one of the world’s great cultural, research, and educational centers.
There are two great exhibits here:
Junípero Serra and the Legacies of the California Missions
Form and Landscape: Southern California Edison and the Los Angeles Basin,[masked]
A private, nonprofit institution, The Huntington was founded in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington, an exceptional businessman who built a financial empire that included railroad companies, utilities, and real estate holdings in Southern California.
Huntington was also a man of vision – with a special interest in books, art, and gardens. During his lifetime, he amassed the core of one of the finest research libraries in the world, established a splendid art collection, and created an array of botanical gardens with plants from a geographic range spanning the globe.
These three distinct facets of The Huntington are linked by a devotion to research, education, and beauty.
