Holiday events at museum historic sites in Redlands, Rancho Cucamonga
The Asistencia in Redlands is joining with their neighbors for the Redlands Heritage Park Christmas Celebration on Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Asistencia was established in 1819 as part of the Mission San Gabriel’s Rancho San Bernardino. The ranch buildings were in ruins when they were acquired by San Bernardino County; restoration as an asistencia took place between 1926 and 1937. It is recognized as California State Historical Landmark #42. During the celebration, admission to the Asistencia (regularly $5/adult, $4/senior or military, and $2.50/child) will be half price. Visitors will enjoy tours, decorations, music, hot mulled cider, and crafts and games for children. The Asistencia is at 26930 Barton Road in Redlands; for information, call (909) 793-5402.
