Don Lynch, West Adams Historian

Did you know that West Adams contains the largest concentration of historical monuments in all of Los Angeles?

Find out more about this in the recently published West Adams, part of a series called Images of America published by Arcadia Publishing and co-authored by Western Heights resident historian, Don Lynch, along with West Adam residents Suzanne Tarbell Cooper and John Kurtz,

You will find 1918 aerial shots of both Western Heights and Kinney Heights as well as historic scenes from each neighborhood.

A number of  historic pictures of homes in Western Heights  are featured such as:
2129 West 21st, 2101 S. Gramercy, 2219 West 20th (contemporary photo, but the shooting in the entryway in 1913 was too good to leave out of the book), 2268 West 20th, 2279 West 20th, and 2267 West 20th.
