“home of the one & only will rogers!”
In the early 1930s, Will Rogers was the most popular and highest paid actor in Hollywood. From his start in vaudeville theater with a trick roping act, he rose to world-wide fame as a columnist, philosopher, radio personality, and movie star. During the 1920s, he bought land in Santa Monica, where he developed a ranch. Eventually, Will Rogers owned 186 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in what is now known as Pacific Palisades. The ranch became the place where Will Rogers could relax with his family and friends, pursuing his favorite pastimes of riding and roping. At his untimely death in a plane crash in 1935, Will Rogers' ranch consisted of a 31-room ranch house, a stable, corrals, riding ring, roping arena, polo field, golf course, and hiking trails. When his widow, Betty, died in 1944, the ranch became a state park.
Located North of Santa Monica, Will Rogers State Historic Park stands and awaits for all visitors to walk in and spend some valuable time.
There are areas to sit and picnic, the stables are full of horses and you can horse ride if you wish.
I would recommend you visit the house of Will Rogers and learn about the history of it by the guide who is very kind and willing to answer to any answer. The interiors of the house are kept at a great condition!
