La Loma de los Vientos
(The Hill of the Winds)
The Hart museum will remain closed until further notice. The County approved a motion to begin
negotiations to transfer ownership of William S. Hart Park and Museum to the City of Santa Clarita.
The Hart Museum sits atop a hill within a large park area. It is
a house museum that was once the retirement home of William S.
Hart, a silent-screen cowboy movie star. The Spanish colonial
Revival style mansion contains original furnishings, an impressive
collection of western art, mementos or early Hollywood and Native
American artifacts. In addition, there is a furnished 1910 ranch
house which is open for unguided tours.
The surrounding park grounds are operated by the Los Angeles County
Department of Parks and Recreation. Picnic facilities are available
in the park. There is a nature trail, a live farm animal exhibit, a
herd of bison occupying part of the range area of this 260 acre
"Horseshoe Ranch", and free tours of the house!
William S. Hart park is less than an hour's drive from most areas
of Los Angeles.
