Muller House Museum

In 1899, Edward Mahar built a home at 129 Front Street for his parents who resided
in Wilmington. They chose not to move to the new home.

Elsie and William Muller

Shipbuilder William Muller then purchased the home in 1901 for his growing family.
In 1912, Front Street was bulldozed and widened to become Harbor Boulevard. At
this time Muller’s house was relocated by mule and wagon to 19th Street and Grand
Avenue. Over time, upgrades were made to keep up with early twentieth-century modernizations.

With the support of the Historical Society, the house was declared Cultural
Heritage Monument # 254
 in 1982. It remained at 19th and Grand until 1986
when it was donated to the San Pedro Bay Historical Society for use as a museum.
Moved once more, it was renovated by the Society and opened to the public in the
fall of 1990. The house now sits on a bluff overlooking San Pedro Bay on land leased
from the City of Los Angeles and maintained by the Society.

Open from 1:00 to 4:00 PM every Sunday except holidays, with the last tour at 3:30 PM. The Muller House Museum offers guided tours, monthly exhibits, discussions of historical interest and special events. See our Calendar of Events for specific activities. Admission is free, but a donation of $3 per person is encouraged.
