Whitaker-Jaynes and Bacon House Virtual Tour

Whitaker-Jaynes Estate

The Whitaker-Jaynes House was built for Andrew W. Whitaker when he arrived from Indiana in 1887 to join his brother, James A. Whitaker, a prosperous wholesale grocer from Chicago who bought 690 acres of land in Buena Park in 1885 to establish a cattle ranch.

Bacon House

The oldest surviving structure in Buena Park, the Bacon House is a rare example of single-wall construction with newspapers applied to the inside walls to seal out drafts.  The house was originally built on Rancho Los Coyotes, which was created by a land grant from the King of Spain.  Today, the Bacon House is a home museum with period and original furnishings.
