HistoricPlacesLA Catalogues Over 25,000 of L.A.’s Most Significant Buildings and Sites

“As the head of the City of Los Angeles’s historic preservation program, I’m amazed that I still sometimes get puzzled questions from people who think L.A. has no past. “Historic preservation in Los Angeles? Do you really have anything historic to preserve?” Yes, it’s true that Los Angeles came of age later than most of its East Coast or international counterparts, but it’s a city of remarkable history and architectural heritage.  And for anyone who’s still somehow unconvinced, I now have a ready retort: HistoricPlacesLA, Los Angeles Historic Resources Inventory, launched today at HistoricPlacesLA.org.” (via The Getty Iris)
