If you want to learn about the past of the Sunland Tujunga area (which was settled shortly after the turn of the century), your first stop should be the Bolton Hall Museum. Bolton Hall was one of the social centers of the area and served as city hall from the 1925 to the 1932 when Tujunga became part of Los Angeles. The building was designed by George Harris and shows some Spanish and Native American influences. In August 1962 Bolton Hall was declared Los Angeles City Historic Monument Number 2. It was closed until 27 June 1981 when it was reopened as a museum. If you are very lucky you will get Mary Ann Pozzo as your tour guide; she is quite knowledgeable. Bolton Hall is open 1 PM to 4 PM on Tuesdays and Sundays. Admission is free. After touring the museum you can relax on the tree shaded lawn. They have special programs the second Saturday of each month except July and August.

Address: 10110 Commerce Avenue, Tujunga, CA 91404
Directions: Bolton Hall is on the corner of Commerce Avenue and Valmont Street just a few blocks off Foothills the main street in Tujunga.
