Hathaway Ranch & Oil Museum Reviews & Ratings
It was an informative experience. Personally, I wasn’t very fond of how the time was spent but if you are a historian then this place is perfect for you. You also need a ton of time to actually get to see anything. And if you plan on going here for a fun first date, I highly recommend against it. Mainly because you won’t have anytime to actually talk to your date. The tour guide nonstop talks.
Needs a lot of work. Place looks very deteriorated. Need new guides.
The environment of the Ranch is instantly welcoming. It is unique and beautiful in every way. The original items here have their own heartfelt stories. Each story told is fascinating. There is so much to learn, see, and admire. I would like to thank Richard for being so informative and kind. This Ranch is amazing, and you won't regret going. I'll be back really soon.
Only two workers who were both hard to understand, one of them smelled like they haven't showered in a month. They both never stop talking and don't let you explore on your own. There are many goats (around 50) and they try to eat your toes. One of them is hard to understand. There is one house from the 30's in perfect condition but you can't go in it. Not very safe for kids with many sharp objects lazily put out in the lawn. Only go if you have around 4 hours of free time and are ready to be told an encyclopedia of knowledge.
Nice little piece of history in Santa Fe Springs.
