Huntington Library 2 Great Exhibits - CA Missions & L.A. Development


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

and

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.

Directions:

Harbor or Pasadena Freeway #110: Take the 110 Freeway north towards Pasadena where it ends, becoming Arroyo Parkway. Continue on Arroyo for 3 traffic signals, to California Blvd. Turn right on California and continue for approximately 3 miles. After passing the Caltech campus, continue for several blocks to the next traffic signal at Allen Avenue. Turn right on Allen Avenue and proceed two blocks to The Huntington's Allen gate.

Foothill Freeway I-#210: Traveling westbound and eastbound, exit at the Sierra Madre Blvd. off-ramp in Pasadena and head south. Turn right on California Blvd.; proceed to Allen Ave. and turn left; go two blocks to the Allen gate. Alternatively, continue straight down Sierra Madre Blvd. to Euston Road and follow the signs to the Oxford gate.

Santa Monica Freeway #10: From Santa Monica, LAX, or the West Side, take the 10 freeway eastbound to the 110 freeway north. Take the 110 into Pasadena where it will end, becoming Arroyo Parkway. Continue north on Arroyo to the second traffic signal, at California Boulevard. Turn right on California and continue for about two miles. After passing the Caltech campus, continue for several blocks to the next traffic signal at Allen Avenue.

San Bernardino Freeway #10: Exit at San Gabriel Boulevard and go north. Continue for about 3 miles to Huntington Drive. Turn left and take Huntington Drive for about one mile into the city of San Marino. Cross the intersection at Sierra Madre Boulevard and immediately turn right at Monterey Road. Continue bearing to the right onto Oxford Road, and come straight up Oxford for two blocks to the Huntington's Oxford gate.

From other area freeways: Refer to map for connections to the 110, 210, or 10 Freeways, and follow directions above.

    I just went 2 weeks ago with another meetup. We found out that if you have more than 10 people you can all get in for $14. We has over 20 people. But you need one person to buy them at once. So I suggest you bring cash and meet right in front of the gift shop. It's a pretty good savings that you spend on lunch....
