American attitudes toward death changed dramatically from the 1840s, when the Workman family built their home, through the 1920s, when the Temples built La Casa Nueva next door in Industry.

The Homestead Museum will explore these changes as experienced by the two families and includes a visit to El Campo Santo, the private cemetery established by the Workman family in the 1850s. Tours will be offered hourly from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1, 2.

The hour-long tours are free, but reservations are recommended because space is limited. This tour can accommodate visitors with limited mobility and is recommended for ages 9 and up.

For information about any of these programs, or reservations, call (626) 968-8492.
