Obscura Society LA: Graveyard and Homestead in the City of Industry

Explore a Pioneering California family's beautiful rancho in the middle of the City of Industry

Join KCET and Curbed's Hadley Meares as we tour the fascinating Workman-Temple Homestead Museum in the City of Industry.

William Workman came to Los Angeles in 1841 and spawned a dynasty that would influence Southern California life for over a century. The family established a home on the sprawling Rancho La Puente. A docent will lead us through the family's original adobe home, as well as the beautiful art-deco inspired La Casa Nueva, completed in 1927. Hadley will also lead a tour of El Campo Santo Cemetery, established in the 1850s and the final resting place of Alta California governor Pio Pico.
