San Gabriel Valley Museums


The main activity of the Duarte Historical Society is the Duarte Historical Museum, located at 777 Encanto Parkway, Duarte, California. The Museum is staffed by docents who open for the public from 1 to 3 pm on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, and from 1 to 4 pm on Saturdays. The Museum is closed on holiday weekends and when a holiday coincides with either a Wednesday or Saturday. The Museum is also open by appointment for groups and individuals.

The Museum was formerly a private house owned by Buron Fitts, district attorney of Los Angeles County, and occupied by his parents. It was located on Royal Oaks Drive just west of Cotter Avenue. Using endowment funds from the estate of John Strunz, the house was purchased by the Society and moved to its present site in 1990, and adapted by Society members as a Museum.
