The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens (or simply “The Huntington” for short) is one of the best existing examples of philanthropy and, lucky you, it’s nestled snugly in Los Angeles. Originally the private residence of Henry E. Huntington, the Huntington estate was built on railroad tycoon money and, upon Mr. Huntington’s passing in 1927, became the library, art collection and botanical gardens it’s known as today. The 120-acre estate is a special escape in the heart of Los Angeles, and its specialized gardens, its fabulous art collection, and its superlative collection of rare books are a treat separately or as a whole day excursion.
