Charles F. Lummis built this small home over a period of twelve years around the turn of the 20th century. Constructed out of concrete and native materials such as boulders, the house provides an excellent glimpse of what many early California homes were like. However, the real attraction here is the story of Lummis himself. A Harvard graduate who started out as a poet, Lummis once walked all the way to California from Cincinnati, recording his observations as pieces for the L.A. Times. Cash only.
