Just a few miles from the LA Waterfront, the beautiful Banning Mansion is a City, State and National Historic Landmark. The gracious, stately Victorian residence and surrounding grounds beckon visitors to experience life as it was in the mid-to late-nineteenth-century Los Angeles and meet one of the area's most influential and visionary residents of the time, General Phineas Banning. The Banning Residence has lovingly been maintained and restored and is today considered the finest existing example of residential Greek Revival architecture in Southern California. The Banning property also includes the Howard Rose Garden, a sanctuary of modern day roses as well as antique varietals that would have been grown in Banning's day.
