Our Heritage Park Museum showcases artifacts from all areas of the Antelope Valley. They demonstrate the rich history of the early pioneer days here. We have thousands of arrowheads and other Native American items that were recovered from Ritter Ranch.
We have a Native American cooking hearth that has been dated as prehistoric; approximately 2500 years old. It was found on Ritter Ranch in a location near Amargosa Creek. The local Kitanemuk tribe lived along the creek for thousands of years. Burials were also found in the area.
Next to the Museum building is an open display with a mural depicting the early history of Leona Valley. It starts with Native American dwellings and progresses through the early settlement of the area, including the 1915 Leona Valley Schoolhouse.
The Milt Stark Library houses our collection of historical documents, photos and artifacts. Milt was the first President of WAVHS and donated many of his well-known photographs to the Library. We also have antique cameras from his extensive collection.
Our Memorial Brick Wall is used to honor families and individuals from our community. Proceeds support the restoration of the 1915 Leona Valley Schoolhouse.
Our 4-H Memorial Park honors local 4-H leaders and members who have passed away. The Leona Valley 4-H Club was started in the 1950s and was run by Letha Rackett for over 50 years. It was renamed the Racketteers 4-H Club in her honor.
