Walking Tour of the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument - the Birthplace of Los Angeles

Join us for a tour led by Las Angelitas del Pueblo volunteers and LACHS members Marilyn Lee Schneider and Don Sloper. We'll take an hour-long easy walk around El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, the birthplace of the City of Los Angeles, where 44 settlers from New Spain (present-day Mexico) established a farming community under Spanish-colonial rule on September 4, 1781. Some of the sites we’ll visit are:

• The Plaza
• Olvera Street Mexican Marketplace
• Avila Adobe
• Pico House (pending availability)
• America Tropical Interpretive Center

El Pueblo boasts the greatest range of architectural styles found anywhere in Los Angeles in one place. The monument exists as a living testament to the diversity of Los Angeles, highlighting the earliest communities that contributed to the city's development.

After the tour we welcome you to stay and explore some of the interesting free museums and attractions on your own:

• Plaza Firehouse
• Italian American Museum of Los Angeles
• Chinese American Museum
• La Plaza de Cultura y Artes
• Gateway to Nature - Western National Parks Center
• Sepulveda House
• La Plaza United Methodist Church, Museum of Social Justice
• Our Lady Queen of Angels Church
