Learn the fascinating history of the city of Compton on December 7th at 1pm. Robert Lee Johnson, who wrote an Arcadia book about the history will be speaking about this city’s rather unknown history. Compton was originally part of the Rancho San Pedro land grant so the museum is pleased to host this talk. There will be a talk, Q&A, then a light reception afterwards.
