Following needed improvements to the facilities, the William S. Hart Museum will re-open on December 22.
Through a partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, the historic mansion received an upgraded roof and other useful renovations. This will better protect the artifacts inside the silent film star’s former residence, which was built in the 1920s.
