Formerly known as “The Old Ranch House”, the Jonathan Bailey House is a historic site in Whittier, California. The Bailey House was built around 1868-1869 by Jacob Gerkens. In 1887, the house was occupied by Jonathan Bailey and his wife, Rebecca. It is the oldest remaining building in Whittier. The first “Friends” meetings in the area were held on the front porch of the Bailey House. In 1975, the Jonathan Bailey House was deeded to the city of Whittier and now operates as a museum by the Whittier Historical Society with maintenance by the City of Whittier Park Department with special help from volunteers. The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
