Charles Lummis walked to Los Angeles from Ohio, back when there was more than traffic to worry about. Along the way, he filed stories with the Los Angeles Times. When he arrived, he became the paper's first City Editor.
He built his home, El Alisal, with his own hands. It took him twelve years (1898-1910). The house is one of the earliest examples of Craftsman architecture in the U.S. Each door, each window, is different from the last, because they're all made by hand. The house is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12-4, and it's free. You're welcome to make a donation.
And it's okay about the pictures because I intend to go back and take more.
