MORE TO SEE: The West Adams Heritage Association Gives the Background on Everything You'll See on Saturday



Thanks to Laura Meyers of the West Adams Heritage Association for putting together this amazing brochure of highlights you'll see on this year's Great Los Angeles Walk. This will give you a lot of background on everything we'll see. Laura plans to pass out a limited number of these brochures on Saturday, but download this doc if you can and read more either then or later!

About the WAHA: WAHA was founded in 1983, and has sponsored many historic architecture and cultural history tours, and other events, since that time. Among our ongoing activities (which we plan to reinstitute as the COVID pandemic is lessoning), are an annual Living History Tour at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery, a Holiday Historic Homes Tour & Progressive Dinner (resuming in 2023); and “Before and After” tours focusing on renovation stories and demonstration of techniques.

WAHA has been recognized for its preservation efforts and its cultural heritage education efforts by the California Preservation Foundation and the Los Angeles Conservancy, and was also the recipient of a Governor’s Preservation Award for “Strolls” through our neighborhoods.

WAHA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. WAHA’s mission is to encourage and promote preservation of the community’s architectural heritage, to further appreciation of cultural heritage, to educate in restoration techniques, and to support beautification efforts.

In part through this organization’s efforts, West Adams has become home to nine Historic Preservation Overlay Zone local historic districts, one Specific Plan with a preservation focus, several California Register Historic Districts, plus nine National Register Historic Districts. With WAHA’s help and the efforts of dedicated volunteers, West Adams is also home to more individual historic landmarks than any other community in Los Angeles.

WAHA also engages in historic preservation advocacy in our neighboring communities of Exposition Park, the Wilshire District, and the Westlake District.
