Mapping The Alvarado Terrace Historic District

Feb 14, 2011 by Lisa Newton

Over the course of four days last week, I featured various historical landmarks in the Alvarado Terrace Historic District. Whenever I write a series like this, it really is a labor of love.

The other day, as I was talking about Alvarado Terrace to a friend who has lived in the West Side of Los Angeles her whole life, she told me that she’s never been there. She said, “Even though you haven’t lived here very long, you’ve seen more of the city than I have.”

I didn’t really know how to respond to her statement, except to tell her that I really do love Los Angeles, and I think and feel that it all too frequently gets a bad rap. So, when I come across a hidden jewel, like Alvarado Terrace, I love and indeed want to share it.

So, in that vein, here are all four parts of the Alvarado Terrace Historic District Tour, plus a map showing all its various and myriad historical sites.

When you have some extra time, I urge you to visit. Be sure to click the icons on the map below. They each contain a photo and a description:

I’m not sure where in Los Angeles I’ll re-discover many untold or forgotten parts of our local history and architecture again, but I know I’ll love writing about and sharing it with you nonetheless.

Do you have any suggestions or places you’ve wanted to see but just haven’t had time? Let me know.

Thanks again to the Los Angeles Conservancy, who provided most of the historical information for these sets of articles. They are a true gem and important cultural asset for our city.
