Will Rogers State Historic Park sits on the land that was a ranch owned by actor, radio personality, columnist, humorist and philosopher Will Rogers. Rogers died in 1935, and after the death of his widow, Betty, in 1944, the land became a state park. The Rogers' ranch house stands on the property, and features a polo field where the Will Rogers Polo Club plays, and where various equestrian activities are held. Visitors can hike a moderate three-mile trail, as well as the Backbone Trail that leads into the Santa Monica Mountains. Tour arrangements can be made for schools and other groups on Thursdays and Fridays.
