Los Angeles Conservancy
523 West Sixth Street, Suite 826
Los Angeles, CA 90014
The Conservancy works with property owners, developers, public officials, and other stakeholders to find mutual solutions that preserve irreplaceable historic resources. It spearheads and promotes initiatives to facilitate preservation and deter senseless demolition, including the Mills Act and other investment tax credits, the Los Angeles Adaptive Reuse Ordinance, and the creation of historic districts. Their advocacy efforts have helped to save and revitalize such beloved landmarks as the former Cathedral of St. Vibiana, the Wilshire May Company Building, the Wiltern Theatre, the Cinerama Dome, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House, and the world’s oldest remaining McDonald’s restaurant.
Their walking tours—which have introduced scores of Angelenos to the history and value of greater Los Angeles’ built environment—cover a range of topics, from downtown’s renaissance to the details of the Art Deco style. Last Remaining Seats, their annual summer series of classic films in historic theatres, brings more than 10,000 people into L.A.’s spectacular movie palaces.
The Conservancy’s website has information about more than 600 historic places throughout Los Angeles County, as well as updates on issues and events. To learn more, visit www.laconservancy.org
