“One of the best ways to keep history alive in our community is to visit the remaining historic sites and attractions we have left. Come by the Newland House Museum for a tour of the home of some of Huntington Beach’s first residents or come to our many free historical events throughout the year including Southern California’s largest Civil War reenactment, HB Civil War Days, hosted by the HB Historical Society on Labor Day Weekend in Central Park.”

“The Newland House Museum (pictured above) is the oldest residence built in the city of Huntington Beach and is maintained by the Huntington Beach Historical Society for all to see. This house was built in 1898 for Huntington Beach pioneers William and Mary Newland and their ten children. The original Newland ranch extended from Beach Blvd. to Magnolia and from Yorktown south to Atlanta for a total of 500+ acres in which they planted lima beans, sugar beets, celery and later chili peppers. The house is open for tours to the public. “
