Backstory and Context
During the early years, water was obtained from a natural spring near the present day intersection of Adams Avenue and Beach Boulevard. William Newland later developed a water well closer to the house and constructed a water tower. The water tower behind the Newland House was reproduced in the 21st Century by the Huntington Beach Historical Society.
The Huntington Beach Historical Society is responsible for the maintenance and improvements of the Newland House Museum. The Museum is open on the first and third weekends of the month, between noon and 4 p.m.
