LA Conservancy Fall Tour: Downtown LA Arts District

LA Trust & Savings

The Downtown LA Arts District never ceases to amaze. Many of us just read about what’s happening on the eastern side of Downtown…waiting for the right time to explore or relying on friends to suggest dinner at the area’s popular Church & State.

The time has come to cast all excuses aside…

On Sunday, November 10th, the LA Conservancy presents a one time only tour that will connect participants to the history and architecture of the Downtown LA Arts District. According to the LA Conservancy overview:

This neighborhood, with its distinctly industrial feel and brick warehouse-lined streets, has been in a state of constant transition and change throughout its history. You can discover the many layers of its history while experiencing its colorful and artistic identity today.

The tour will be self-paced. You can visit as many of the tour sites as you’d like during the tour hours, and at designated sites you will find Conservancy docents to provide interpretation and mini-tours.

Tickets are $30 for LA Conservancy Members/$35 for the general public (reduced prices for students and children).

  • Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc; orig. Santa Fe Freight Depot, 1922)
  • Angel City Brewery (orig. John A. Roebling’s Sons Co. Wire Works Building, 1913)
  • James K. Hill and Sons Pickle Works (also known as Citizens Warehouse and Art Dock, 1888) – exterior only
