It's not just people who pack up and hit the road. For its quarterly meeting the Echo Park Historical Society will show you a fourplex that faced annihilation and changed its address and got a renovation. No small feat when the easy ticket would have been to let the city knock it down and forget about it.
In August 2002, a Craftsman apartment building threatened with demolition was moved in the middle of the night down Sunset Boulevard to a safe haven in Angelino Heights. It was only the beginning of a long journey through the renovation process for the building and its owner, Kevin Kuzma. Come take a look at the place and find out about the challenges Kuzma faced in rescuing and restoring this piece of Echo Park History. This presentation is part of the EPHS' quarterly meeting, which is free and open to the public
Meeting Date & Time: Wednesday, July 25 at 6:30 p.m. The house will be open to the public at 6:30 pm. A presentation will follow at 7 pm.
Location: : 1121 W. Marion Ave. (between Sunset Blvd. & Kensington Rd.)
The house used to be on Alvarado between the Downbeat and the Methodist Church. It sat on what now is the parking lot of the Edendale Library.
