If you live in or travel to the City of Industry in California, you should know about a Spanish-style mansion built on the waves of wealth from the 1920s. The lovely tile and stained glass adorning La Casa Nueva was made possible by a lucrative oil find on the property.
After failed investments, the property was lost and became a military school, and then a convalescent home. It has since been renovated into a museum and is now a destination for tourists to see a glimpse of the past.
While the City of Industry may be known for its industrial parks and big corporations like FedEx, there are still beautifully preserved remnants of its robust history.
