The Echo Park Historical Society’s Stairway Walking Tour on Saturday, April 21 at 10 am includes the Baxter Stairs (possibly the city’s longest) as well as Fellowship Park, Red Hill and the modernist Harwell Hamilton Harris house. This is a modestly strenuous tour that includes one long stairway and several steep hills.
The tour is 2 hours long and shows how these forgotten stairways don’t just link the hills to the flatlands, but the past to the present.
Building interiors are not included. Free for members, $5 for non-members. Meet at Echo Park Avenue and Baxter Street in Echo Park.
