The Los Angeles Conservancy presents another in its popular home tour series “At Home with History” on Sunday, November 6th from 10am to 4pm. Visitors will get the opportunity to explore the historic neighborhoods of Los Angeles, known as Historic Preservation Overlay Zones, or HPOZs. They’ll be able to speak with docents as well as residents about their experience living in HPOZs, and see firsthand how owners create personal, livable homes while preserving their historic integrity.
This special, one-time-only tour will feature three relatively new HPOZs, coined “the triplet” by residents because of their close proximity: Country Club Park, Wilshire Park and Windsor Village. The three locations are adjacent to one another, sharing a border along Crenshaw Boulevard near Olympic Boulevard. Developed in the early to mid-twentieth century, each neighborhood has a unique and fascinating history and feature diverse styles of architecture.
“At Home with History” includes docent-led tours of six private homes:
- Mediterranean-style Milbank Mansion (G. Lawrence Stimson, 1913) in Country Club Park
- Restored 1911 Craftsman home in Country Club Park
- A Beaux-Arts/Italianate house, circa 1920, in Wilshire Park
- 1926 Mediterranean/Spanish Colonial Revival home in Wilshire Park
- French Eclectic apartment complex built in 1936 in Windsor Village
- Prairie-style home built in 1915 in Windsor Village
Tickets for this tour are $30 for Los Angeles Conservancy members, $40 for the general public, and $10 for kids 12 and under. You can purchase tickets online here.
