The Huntington Library in San Marino, CA

Posted on Sep 28, 2010 by in Active Rain | 0 comments

The Huntington Library in San Marino, C A is not a Library in the conventional sense; rather it is a beautiful park with unusual flowers, rare vegetation and a serene sanctuary. It is the perfect get away for a peaceful afternoon or day. Depending on how much time you would like to devote to this serene sanctuary from the everyday hustle and bustle of activity.

 Henry E Huntington (1850-1927) is mostly known for being one of the biggest Land developers in the San Gabriel Valley.  He built this magnificent Mansion in San Marino, CA.  Here he kept a large collection of paintings and rare books as well as manuscripts which are priceless nowadays. This became the foundation for the Henry E Huntington Library and Art Gallery.


Part of his grand estate consisted of what is now known as the Huntington Botanical Gardens. There are many featured attractions which bring people from all over the world to see. Just to name a few:  a 12-acre desert garden, a 6-acre Japanese garden, a Shakespeare garden, a palm garden.

The entire estate consists of 207 acres and every acre is landscaped. So you can imagine how much time you can spend here. Lovers of nature can come back again and again, enjoying the seasonal variations of the park’s vegetation.

Make this one of your must see destinations. If it is not on your “bucket list” it should be!
