The Homestead Acre houses the Chatsworth Historical Society, the Chatsworth Museum, the Frank H. Schepler, Jr. Memorial Library and the Hill-Palmer Homestead Cottage. The Hill-Palmer Cottage is the only remaining homestead cottage in the San Fernando Valley. The tour will be lead by Elaine Campbell, longtime member and docent of the Chatsworth Historic Society, as well as Chatsworth resident. She will guide tour participants through the homestead, the gardens, and memorabilia from the estate of the Duke of Devonshire. The homestead is typically open only once a month, but Elain has graciously opened the doors so we can find LA!
