Landmark Recognition

Some of Echo Park's most significant historic monuments will receive more public recognition after the city installs landmark street signs near these sites of interest. Thanks to the office of Council member Eric Garcetti, the city council approved a motion on Tuesday to install four monument signs around Echo Park Lake and in front of Jensen's Recreation Center; the site of the former Mack Sennett Studio on Glendale Boulevard; Barlow Hospital, Chavez Ravine Arboretum in Elysian Park,  the former home of artist Paul Landacre and the Spanish-Colonial home overlooking Echo Park Lake.
 
All these places have been recognized as historic cultural monuments by the City of Los Angeles. These signs, which will be attached to nearby existing poles, will help promote awareness of these special sites and Echo Park's historic significance. The EPHS would like to thank Kabira Stokes Hochberg, a field deputy for Council District 13, for her assistance on this project.
