A little history about the King Gillette Ranch:
King Camp Gillette invented the disposable razor and he and his wife lived at this ranch in the late 1920′s/early 1930′s. The Visitor Center and several other buildings on the 588 acre site, including the mansion, were designed by Wallace Neff, known as the architect of California’s Golden Era. The Visitor Center has a gift store with unique items found no where else – jewelry, books, t-shirts, toys, honeys & jams, etc.; net proceeds go back to the parks for education, outreach, and research initiatives. The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is the world’s largest urban national park, and those who come to our Visitor Center can obtain info on activities available in the Santa Monica Mountains as well as any one of the other 400+ units of National Parks in the United States. Two hiking trails and several picnic sites are located on the grounds of King Gillette Ranch. The Visitor Center, managed by the National Park Service and open 9 – 5 daily, offers interactive displays, a 22-minute Discovery Channel film on the history of the Santa Monica Mountains, and various programs and events throughout the year. The Santa Monica Mountains Visitor Center is a LEED Platinum building. This event may be cancelled in the event of a government shutdown. Please call the Visitor Center for information or questions.
