Huzzah! The Echo Park Historical Society has finally put up their 2010 tour schedule! And this year, come hell or high water, I am going to drag my ass out of bed before 10am on a Saturday morning and join them!
On Saturday, February 27 Saturday, March 13 they’ll be touring the historic stairways of Echo Park. From their website: “The Echo Park Stairways tour includes the Baxter Stairs (possibly the city’s longest) as well as Fellowship Park, Red Hill and the modernist Harwell Harris house.” The tour begins at 10am and it will begin at the Elysian Heights Elementary School, 1562 Baxter St.
Here are some of their other upcoming tours:
