The Homestead Museum will offer hourly “Beyond the Graves Tours” on Saturday and Sunday, June 13, 14, beginning at 1 a.m.
American attitudes about death changed dramatically from the 1840s, when the Workman family built their home in Industry, through the 1920s, when the Temples built La Casa Nueva next door.
This tour gives an overview of 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.
The hour-long tours are free, but reservations are recommended. This tour can accommodate visitors with limited mobility and is recommended for ages 9 and up.
The museum is at 15415 E. Don Julian Road in the City of Industry. For more information, call (626) 968-8492 or visit homesteadmuseum.org.
