Description
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.
