The Jonathan Bailey House... is an historic site in our city. Built in 1860, the house was occupied by Jonathan Bailey in 1887. Bailey was a leader in the development of Whittier, and his home WAS a center of the city's early business, social and religious activity. The Bailey House was deeded to the City of Whittier in 1975 and is operated as a museum by the Whittier Historical Society with maintenance by the City of Whittier Park Department with special help from volunteers. The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. It's nationally famous!
The volunteers, in particular, the docents, are really important to the Bailey House. The docents TELL THE STORY OF THE BAILEY HOUSE. They are the ones that conduct the tours on Sundays and other arranged showing times. There is a need for docents right now. If you think you might be interested, let THE TEAM know and WE will steer you in the right direction!
