Library, art collection and gardens.
The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a collections-based research and educational institution established in 1919 by Henry E. and Arabella Huntington. Huntington, a key figure in the development of Southern California in the early 20th century, was also an active collector of rare books and manuscripts, art, and plants. By the time he established the institution, he and his wife had amassed an extensive collection focusing on British and American history, literature, and art, as well as rare and spectacular plant specimens.
Located 12 miles from Los Angeles in San Marino, California, the institution serves some 1,800 scholars each year conducting advanced research in the humanities. The library’s rare books and manuscripts comprise one of the world’s largest and most extensively used collections in America outside of the Library of Congress.
