Rancho Dominguez Adobe 

As we made our way inside, the museum reminded us of the Zalud House in Porterville, California. As it is there, the docents have tried to replicate what life would have been like back in the day. Original furniture, clothing, bedding, toys and personal items belonging to the family are displayed in each of the rooms.

Air Meet Display Room

One of the rooms shows an amazing diorama of the 1910 Air Meet at Dominguez Hills. It was the first National Aviation Meet in the United States that lasted for 10 days and brought in over a half million people. The Meet set many air speed records during its duration.  It's a great presentation of a celebrated moment in our State's history.
