The Hathaway Ranch Museum
is located on 11901 Florence Ave Santa Fe Springs, CA.

A brief history about the Hathway's...Jesse Hathaway and Lola McCarric married in 1902 and moved to Santa Fe Springs where they formed a family. They farmed for a while until 20 years later the oil boom erupted all over the city of Santa Fe springs. By 1929 the Hathaway's started an independent oil company. In 1933, a ranch was built, where it is now the Hathaway Ranch Museum. This house was owned by one of their sons, Dick Hathaway. Dick Hathaway was a collector at the time. He kept a lot of his parent's domestic items such as clothes, appliances, and toys.
