Annual Field Trip Set for Huntington Library and Gardens
Tickets are still available for the annual DPHS field trip on Wednesday, November 6. This year’s destination is the beautiful Huntington Library in San Marino.
A private nonprofit, the Huntington Library was founded in 1919 by Henry and Arabella Huntington. Huntington was a wealthy businessman who built a financial empire that included railroad companies, utilities and extensive holdings in Southern California real estate. Henry and Arabella shared a passion for books, art and gardening and this is reflected in the impressive library, art collection and gardens of the Huntington Library.
The bus will depart promptly from the Strand parking lot off Selva Road at 10 a.m. and will arrive at the Huntington at 11:45 a.m., where docents will give us a one-hour tour of the estate. The tour will conclude back at the cafe where guests can purchase lunch. They will then be free to enjoy the buildings, art galleries, gardens and gift shop of this amazing locale. Buses will depart for the return trip to Dana Point promptly at 3:00.
Tickets are $55.00. This includes the bus, admission and tour. The deadline for purchase of tickets is Monday, November 4. Contact Ann Shultz at email@example.com. Bring a check to the bus payable to DPHS, PO Box 544, Dana Point, CA 92629.
