- North of the Civil War Drum Barracks site sits this restored home of one of the founders of Los Angeles, General Phineas Banning. As a state senator, he played an instrumental role in the early development of the future Port of L.A. and in advancing the state of transportation in the area. He left behind this stunning 1864 Greek revival mansion that looks distinctly out of place in modern Southern California. Set on 20 acres, tours of the home and grounds are available and also visit a schoolhouse and stagecoach barn from the same era. Admission: Donation requested, credit cards are not accepted.
