Historic Cultural Monuments in the 13th District

LA City Hall

The City’s Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee recently approved the 20th Historic-Cultural Monument in the 13th District since Councilmember O'Farrell took office back in 2013. 

The AGFA Ansco Building (6424 Sunset Blvd) will join a growing list of monuments the councilmember helped move through Council, including: a 104-year old Craftsman-style home in Silver Lake; the Black Cat Tavern, also in Silver Lake, birthplace of the LGBT movement; the Hollywood Palladium, a Streamline Moderne Art Deco entertainment venue; and the Tom of Finland House in Echo Park, home of the world-renowned artist with the same moniker, just to name a few. Approval by the City Council provides official recognition and protection for Los Angeles’ most significant and cherished historic resources.

The City currently has nearly 1,200 Historic-Cultural Monuments. A complete list of the 20 Historic-Cultural Monuments that have been approved since I took office can be found below.
