Hpht has launched a new campaign to push our city leaders into action: they need to step up in providing the resources and engagement necessary to preserve the Lummis Home property, in partnership with Occidental College. Occidental has demonstrated their own commitment but they cannot do it all alone.

Please sign the online petition HERE and make your voice heard.

The Highland Park Heritage Trust is dedicated to the preservation of Los Angeles’ Arroyo Seco communities of Highland Park, Garvanza, Mt. Washington, Hermon and Montecito Heights and Cypress Park.

We are an all-volunteer, non-profit community organization, and we strive to preserve and promote the historic character of these communities and educate the public about the historic and cultural significance of these Northeast Los Angeles neighborhoods. Working since 1982, our list of accomplishments is spectacular. The work of HPHT is supported by our members. Please consider joining.
