My Historic LA

February 11th, 2012

Do you know of a special place that has architectural, historical, social, or cultural significance in your neighborhood? Visit MyHistoricLA.org to share your ideas!

MyHistoricLA.org is a program of SurveyLA, the citywide Los Angeles Historic Resources Survey project (www.surveyla.org). MyHistoricLA.org is a new and innovative public participation tool that allows you to contribute information about important historic resources in your community. This information is used by professional survey teams as they systematically conduct field surveys over a multi-year period.

MyHistoricLA.org is currently engaging in the following conversations…

Can you tell us about a place in your neighborhood that makes it special?
Can you identify and tell us about a club house or meeting hall that played an important role in Los Angeles history?

Do you know the location and story of any buildings, structures, or landscapes associated with the agricultural history of the San Fernando Valley?

What Los Angeles neighborhood do you think is the best example of Post WWII residential development and suburbanization?

It’s easy to sign in and join this exciting new citywide conversation. Please spread the word — through posts, tweets or old-fashioned emails — to all of your friends and neighbors who care about Los Angeles’ history and architecture.
