firm Flint, Bixby and Co. Jothan Bixby resided on the ranch with his family. The ranch house was remodeled in 1930, and in 1955 4.7 acres of the ranch was sold to the city of Long Beach as a public museum. The original configuration of the adobe was left intact over the years, so the home was interesting to tour.
But to me what is even more exciting about this ranch is the garden, which still has the trees planted in it from the years 1844-1881. The most impressive, because of its height and trunk size, is the Australian Moreton Bay Fig tree which I have pictured here. (Note the people for size comparison.)
