Heritage Museum of Orange County…

Is a cultural and natural history center in Southern California.  The centerpiece of the museum, which covers nearly 12 acres in all, is an historic plaza featuring several buildings from the 1890s set amid extensive floral gardens and citrus groves. Among the buildings is the Kellogg House familiar to teachers and students throughout Orange County as a favorite field trip destination for over 30 years. Another highlight of the museum is a fully operational blacksmith shop. It is the home of the Orange County Blacksmith Guild and members hold regular blacksmith classes. Recent additions to the museum include a hydroponics and aquaponics garden, and a traditional produce farm. The museum farm has been certified to sell its harvested produce and the project is maintained by local high school and college volunteers. The latest major campaign for the museum is to restore the John A. Maag Farmhouse. The home, built in 1899, features three stories in 5,600 square feet of interior living space and is planned for the housing of museum archives, offices and presentation of exhibitions. Two original outbuildings of the Maag Farmhouse currently house offices, meeting space and our gift shop.

Our museum teaches students how one hundred years ago people were reusing, recycling and growing vegetables in their backyard as the customary way of living. Today, our museum not only teaches, but applies its teachings through our every day green operations including:

  • recycling paper, plastic and aluminum.
  • using our own Blacksmith shop for repairs around the property
  • reusing & repurposing old lumber and other construction materials
  • installation of environmentally-sensitive irrigation systems
  • growing our own fruits and vegetables
  • guarding the last surviving fresh water marshes in Santa Ana
  • housing a variety of animal and bird life, as more than 4 acres of our property represent one of the last pieces of natural property in Santa Ana
