Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument

Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monuments are sites in Los Angeles, California, which have been designated by the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission as worthy of preservation based on architectural, historic and cultural criteria.

The City currently has over 1,000 Historic-Cultural Monuments. While the monuments range from the personal residence of African-American architect Paul Williams, to the El Rey Theatre, public libraries, places of worship, and apartment buildings, many of the residential monuments were born out of the Case Study Houses Program and showcase the work of modernist architects like Rudolph Schindler, Richard Neutra, Charles and Ray Eames, Thornton Abell, Pierre Koenig, and Raphael Soriano.
