Moulton Museum

Join us this Sunday, October 2nd from 12-6pm for the Laguna Hills Heritage Day! We are celebrating the 30th anniversary of incorporation of the city.

We have been collaborating with the Moulton Family since 2017. They owned Rancho Niguel in Orange County. It comprised nearly 22,000 acres. Moulton Ranch is now expanded into other parts of California where annual roundups and brandings. We partner with the California Rangeland Trust and are conducting an oral history series with multi-generational families throughout the state.

We opened Moulton Museum in September 2022. We are developing an online and physical presence in Laguna Hills. The museum includes a digitally accessible archive. We are collaborating with a variety of civic, cultural, and historic groups to make this vision possible. 

Moulton Museum opened in Laguna Hills on September 2nd & 3rd, 2022. We had nearly 1,000 visitors over the course of two days.
