As the owner and director of Walker Physical Therapy and Pain Center in Orange, California, Grace Walker approaches therapy with a holistic mind-set, taking into account a patient’s overall health and wellness. In addition to her responsibilities as a physical and occupational therapist, Grace Walker supports many organizations in her community, including the Heritage Museum of Orange County.
Located in Santa Ana, the Heritage Museum is a cultural and natural history museum that celebrates the Victorian era as experienced in Orange County and surrounding regions. The museum is situated on 12 acres of land and contains several historic structures and beautifully landscaped gardens.
The Kellogg House, once located in downtown Santa Ana, was donated to the museum by the Kellogg family. Relocated to the museum grounds in 1980, the house is an excellent example of Queen Anne Victorian architecture. Guests can take tours and learn about life in the Victorian era.
The Maag Farmhouse, built in 1899, was owned by John Anton Maag and his wife, Catherine. Spanning 6,000 square feet, the house was once located on the family’s extensive citrus and nut farm. In 1981, the Colonial Revival house, along with two outbuildings, was moved to the museum grounds. The outbuildings have been renovated into offices, classrooms, and a gift shop, and the farmhouse is currently undergoing renovation.
Guests to the Heritage Museum can also enjoy the Gospel Swamp Natural Area, which once consisted of wetlands created by the Santa Ana River. After a century of development and extensive farming, the wetlands are in dire need of restoration. The museum plays a significant role in that effort, funded in part by a grant from the Southern California Wetlands Recovery Project.
