“Pathways to Yesteryear: Strolling the Street of Dreams” West Adams Heritage Association’s (WAHA) Annual Spring Homes & Architecture Tour

SATURDAY, JUNE 9 Tour grand Victorian era mansions and Queen Anne Cottages alike in one of West Adams’ oldest neighborhoods, University Park. A century ago, Adams Boulevard was Los Angeles’s Street of Dreams – the main artery of a “Bon Ton District” that included Chester Place, St. James Park and the Belgravia Tract, home to some of the City’s finest residences. West Adams Heritage Association (WAHA) invites you to stroll these pathways to yesteryear. This self-guided walking tour will open the doors to a collection of historic buildings that evoke the times and memories of the late 19th century in Los Angeles. Tour visitors may also ramble through the grounds of Chester Place, L.A.’s oldest gated community. Developed in 1899 as an exclusive enclave, these historic mansions are now home to Mount St. Mary’s College.

Tickets: $25 in advance (by June 4) and $30 at the door. Ticket sales close at 1 p.m.; tour properties will close at 4 p.m. To purchase tickets, go to www.westadamsheritage.org.

Additional information: 323-732-4223 or tours@WestAdamsHeritage.org or www.WestAdamsHeritage.org. The tour benefits West Adams Heritage Association (WAHA), a nonprofit organization founded in 1983 to support preservation of the community’s architectural and cultural heritage. 

Note: SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 10 am to 4 pm (last ticket sold at 1 pm)
