The barn and former studio building was originally located at 1521 Vine Street, then was moved to Paramount Studios lot in the 1920's, where it spent the next 55 years. In October of 1979, the Barn was relocated from Paramount Studios to a lot on Vine Streetin Hollywood. After a preservation effort, the barn was relocated to its current, permanent site across the street from the Hollywood Bowl, and it is now open to the public as the Hollywood Heritage Museum.
A trailor that is relocating the Lasky- DeMille Barn" is stopped during a turn from Melrose Avenue onto Vine Street. A signal pole on left has been slightly pulled back to allow more clearance for the structure. Sigage for a Safeway store is partially visible, including a windmill-shaped sign for Van de Kamp's bakery.
