Burn off those extra Thanksgiving calories on the Echo Park stairway tour

The Echo Park Historical Society’s Stairway Walking Tour on Saturday, November 26 at 9 a.m. includes the Baxter Stairs (possibly the city’s longest) as well as Fellowship Park, Red Hill, the modernist Harwell Hamilton Harris house and the restored long lost Lautner house.

This is a modestly strenuous tour that includes one long stairway and several steep hills. The tour is two 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 Elysian Heights Elementary School, 1562 Baxter Street at Echo Park Avenue.
