    HCA's 1870s Picnic (Sept 20th) - Location Update

    The Historical Citizens Association (HCA)'s Board is pleased to announce - we have a new location for our 1870s Picnic!!

    We shall be picnicking at the Banning Residence Museum! (The Museum is located at 401 E M St, Wilmington, CA 90744-2610, in the Long Beach area.)  Picnicking will be FREE and we will have a croquet course (or two) set up.  If you have other games that you would like to bring, such as a set of Graces, please let us know. (Please email Lily Cressman regarding games or questions.


    Also, we are pleased to announce that we have scheduled two docent-guided tours *just for our group*. Tours are approximately 1 hr each and our tours are scheduled for 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm.  Museum Tours are $5.00 per person (children under 12 are free, though the tour is not recommended for those under the age of 9). The $5.00 fee allows you to see ALL the public areas of the 16-room mansion, the barn with its vehicles and blacksmith shop, and the one room schoolhouse, plus you'll get *lots* of local historical information. (Great bargain!)


    Parking - you can park all cars/vans on M Street (1 block south of Pacific Coast Hwy), which runs east-west past the house, or on Banning Blvd, which runs north-south from M Street (directly in front of the house).

    As a reminder - 1870s dress is encouraged. Please bring your own picnicking items (blanket or table/chairs, as well as food and drink items). 

    Hope to see you there!
