Aline Barnsdall donated Barnsdall Art Park to the City of Los Angeles in 1927 for arts and recreational purposes. Hollyhock House, designed by world-renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1971 - Building #71000143 - is the centerpiece of the park, which is located at 4800 Hollywood Blvd. The Hollyhock House was designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #12 in 1963, the 12-acre Barnsdall Park was designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #34 in 1965 and Residence A (Barnsdall Park Arts Center) was designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #33 in 1965. Residence B was not part of the donation to the city and Aline continued to live in this smaller house on the Edgemont side of the park, which was demolished in 1954. Exterior view of Hollyhock House located at 4808 Hollywood Boulevard.
