The Museum is currently registered on the National Registry of Historical Places, and at one time, held up to 200 acres of grape, prune, avocado, and citrus trees. Built in 1891, the D.D. Johnston-Hargitt House Museum is a two-story Eastlake Victorian farmhouse that was owned by Darius David Johnston. He was one of Norwalk's leading pioneers as well as the organizer of the Norwalk School District. He served on the school board from the late 1880's until his death in 1917. The Museum contains family heirlooms and other memorabilia as well as glimpses into Norwalk's past. The Museum is brought to life through docent-led tours given by the Friends of Hargitt House. Admission is free; however, donations are always welcome. The Museum may be closed in inclement weather.
