L.A. Heritage Day - Sunday, March 22

Longfellow-Hastings Octagon House

If you’ve got but a sliver of interest in the history and culture of Los Angeles, CA, you’ve probably already got Sunday, March 22, marked on your calendar. L.A. Heritage Day, being held at Heritage Square Museum, brings together more than seventy-five history and heritage-minded organizations whose goal it is “to reconnect the public with greater Los Angeles’ vast range of cultural institutions and resources.” The event kicks off at 11:00 a.m. and costs $5 (cheap!) or, if you present this flyer, $0 (cheaper!).

The shot above is from the March 7 dedication of the rebuilt veranda on the Longfellow-Hastings Octagon House, HCM No. 413, as part of Heritage Square’s 40th anniversary.

Below, from top to bottom, the museum’s Hale House, Perry House, Palms-Southern Pacific Railroad Depot, Valley Knudsen Garden-Residence, and Ford House. L.A. Historic-Cultural Monuments all.
