William S. Hart Museum

William S Hart was a silent film star at the beginning of the century. He made western cowboy films and was famous for making the most-authentic true-to-life films of the time. He lived in Hollywood for most of his career, but in 1926 Bill commissioned Arthur Kelly to build a mansion in Newhall. Bill Hart was also a great art collector; his magnificent home is now filled with art from artists like Charlie Russell and Frederic Remington. When he died he left his home and the surrounding land to the county of Los Angeles, hoping that he could give back to the community that had treated him so generously. Now his home, and all the great art within it can be appreciated by anyone who wishes to come by.
