OMG. RANCHO LA PUENTE HAS SO MUCH HISTORY AS WELL.  WILLIAM WORKMAN, JOHN ROWLAND, A MR. SANCHEZ, THE YORBAS WHO MARRIED INTO THE ROWLAND FAMILY AND OTHER WELL-KNOWN CALIFORNIOS. TO LEAVE THE STORY OF RANCHO LA PUENTE OUT OF MY OWN HISTORY BOOK WOULD BE A SIN FOR THERE IS SO MUCH TO TELL THAT HASN'T BEEN TOLD BEFORE. 

 FORTUNATELY, THE WORKMAN HOMESTEAD MUSEUM IS NEARBY AND VERY HANDY.  IN FACT, PIO PICO IS BURIED ON ITS GROUNDS AS HE WAS A GOOD FRIEND OF THE WORKMANS AND THE TEMPLES WHO ALSO MARRIED INTO THE WORKMAN FAMILY.
