Happy Sunday! We hope you are enjoying a this beautiful morning in our neighborhoods. The forecast is for a warm, sunny week, which hopefully means lots of time outdoors on Larchmont Blvd. or walking in the neighborhood and appreciating the rich architectural heritage of our streets.
Our new Sunday edition will feature stories about local homes, including historic profiles, homes for sale, gardens, and local lifestyle. We’ve even set up an Open House Calendar in case you’re in the market or just like to check out what’s available. And if you’re in the business, we invite you to list your next open house, just click the green “Add Event” button on the calendar page!
We are very pleased to partner with the Windsor Square Hancock Park Historical Society to publish its research on local homes. Thanks to the efforts of dozens of volunteers over the years, the Society has quite a treasure trove of historic research.
“We are so proud of our Historical Society Committee, which took the first steps in transcribing the many years of research done on homes by other past Historical Society members,” Richard Battaglia, WSHPHS President told the Buzz. “Every house tells a story, and the homes in Windsor Square and Hancock Park are no exception.”
In the early years of research on these houses, Society members hoped to publish a book, which they still hope to do in the future. Under Battaglia’s leadership, they have been transcribing the original research and posting then on their website and have agreed to allow us to publish the work, which helps create a dual archive that will be more accessible to everyone who loves to read about historic homes in Los Angeles.
Our thanks to Battaglia, and Society members Jane Gilman, Barbara Coad, Grace Kaminski, Beate Kessler, Joseph Guidera, and Bret Parsons, who serves as editor of the WSHPHS project, and Alex Elliott for his new photographs of each house.
