Banning Residence Museum


Banning House, also known as the General Phineas Banning Residence Museum, is a historic Greek Revival-Victorian home in the Wilmington area of Los Angeles. Built in 1863 by Phineas Banning near the original San Pedro Bay, it remained in the Banning family until 1925 and has been owned by the City of Los Angeles since 1927. The home, barn and gardens are now operated as a museum. The Banning House property covers 20 acres and is also known as Banning Park. It was designated as a California Historical Landmark in 1935, a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in October 1963, and has been federally listed on the National Register of Historic Places since May 1971.
