Major Henry Hancock was given ownership to a large ranch in Los Angeles
known as Rancho La Brea, in 1860. Under the surface of the property was
a mass quantity of crude tar [called brea in Spanish] thus, the ranch
was named Rancho La Brea. In the 1870's, Hancock found the skeletal
remains of dinosaurs as well as one Indian woman within the tar pits.
The area that contains the skeleton collection and the Tar Pits is what
is now called Hancock Park. Major Henry Hancock also owned the land to
the east which includes the residential area of Hancock Park.
