Christian Rodriguez, curator of the building and Operations Coordinator of Occidental Colleges Institute for the Study of Los Angeles will make the case for the national importance of “El Alsal” and advocate for its adoption as a National Monument.
“If there ever has been a place in Los Angeles that captures the spirit of a time and person it is El Alisal, the home, garden and passion of Charles Fletcher Lummis in Highland Park. From 1897, when Lummis started building the house out of local stone taken from the adjacent Arroyo Seco, until his death in 1928, the idiosyncratically styled concoction, which was completed in 1910, served as a center of a movement labeled the ‘arroyo culture’.”—Sam Hall Kaplan-Los Angeles Times
