Heritage Junction

The William S. Hart Museum is the former retirement home of the famed silent film actor and director who produced a series of hit Western movies in the early 1900s. His beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival style Mansion - now the William S. Hart Museum - exhibits an impressive collection of Western artwork as well as mementos from early Hollywood, personal furnishings and effects, and artifacts representing multiple Native American cultures. The Hart Museum is a tribute to Southern California history. It also includes an historic 1910 Ranch House that exhibits Hart's tack and saddle collection, personal furnishings, and additional Hollywood mementos. Both the Mansion and Ranch House are located in scenic William S. Hart Park, where guests may enjoy visiting a live collection of farm animals, a herd of American bison, a vast picnic area, a series of hiking trails, and a charming Western-themed Gift Store. Free guided tours are offered year-round at the William S. Hart Museum. Experience Southern California history and connect with nature, history, and Hollywood, while experiencing the life and legacy of the legendary William S. Hart.
