Field trip to Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum
Travel back in time to the age of Mexican Ranchos. The houses, cemetery, and gardens of the Homestead Museum will captivate you with its rich history and beautiful architecture.

The land was originally owned by cattle ranchers, William and Nicolasa Workman. The Workmans built a modest adobe style home, which was remodeled twice before the family lost their land and wealth due to a failed investment. Years later, the Workmans' grandson Walter and his wife Laura regained ownership of a portion of the land, on which they built a Spanish Colonial Revival mansion next to the original Workman home. Sadly, the Temple family (who arrived 13 years earlier) lost their wealth due to failed investments similar to the Workman family. This lead to the foreclosure of the property once again.


Several different school group tours are offered, each focusing on different aspects of the museum's history. Learn about real cowboys, forms of entertainment, and much more!
