deasy/penner Sponsors LA Conservancy’s Neighborhood Tour: The Homes of View Park


The Homes of View Park

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Tour Times: 10:30am, 11:45am & 1:00pm

This special, one-day only neighborhood tour will explore the history and architecture of View Park. Located between La Cienega Boulevard to the east, Crenshaw Boulevard to the west, Stocker Street to the north and West Slauson Avenue to the south, this historic neighborhood just south of the Baldwin Hills was recently listed in the National Register of Historic Places, in part for its significance as an enclave of black heritage.

On the tour, you’ll enjoy rare access to several private homes, some of which are owned by residents who have lived in View Park more than 50 years. The tour also includes the first house in unincorporated L.A. County to gain historic landmark status.

The tour will begin with an opening presentation about the area’s development and its African American history. Speakers will include Roland Wiley, a prominent resident of View Park for over 35 years. Guests will then be free to explore the neighborhood at their own pace. At each designated tour site, Conservancy docents will provide architectural, historical and cultural information. Local residents will give first-hand accounts of the neighborhood and its evolution.
