Lummis House, also known as El Alisal, is a Rustic American Craftsman stone house built by Charles Fletcher Lummis in the late 19th century. It is located near the Arroyo Seco in northeast Los Angeles, California. The house's name means "alder grove" in Spanish.
The Lummis House is operated by the Historical Society of Southern California as a historic house museum. The exterior of the house is built of arroyo stone. The house originally contained a stone tower, but that was later demolished. The interior contains some of Lummis's collection of artifacts, as well as copies of many of his books. The museum is open to the public for tours.
