Lummis Doors Preserved, and There Was Much Rejoicing

Historical Society of Southern California

On Sept. 18, 2011 the Historical Society of Southern California (HSSC) held a Rebirthday to celebrate the completion of the preservation work on the entry doors. The work was completed by conservator John Griswold and his staff and funded by donations from the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, Highland Park Heritage Trust, Arroyo Arts Collective, and HSSC with matching funds from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The Historical Society specially recognized Frank F. Parrello, city planner and preservationist, who organized and obtained the funding for the project.

Lummis Home in Great Disrepair

Anna Carpenter

El Alisal is a magical home built along the banks of the Arroyo Seco at a time when the Far West was still alive and kicking. Inside, standing in the coolness of its massive walls and concrete floors, I have always been reminded of another house, also a museum, on the island of Capri: the Villa San Michele. Perhaps because both were built by intense, charismatic writers who lived life fully in their own adventurous way. Though the Italian villa has been well maintained over the last century, this is sadly not true for the Lummis House, which is in serious disrepair…
