Breed Street Shul – Living Legacies Productions

During the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s, when Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles had the largest Jewish community in the Western United States, the Breed Street Shul was known as the “Queen of the Shuls,” because it was so grand. Eventually, as the Jewish population left “The Heights,” the Breed Street Shul fell into disrepair and was threatened with demolition. Ellie Kahn’s film depicts the life and the new beginnings of the Breed Street Shul. As in Kahn’s award winning film, “Meet Me at Brooklyn & Soto,” (about the Jewish Community in East L.A. and produced with the Jewish Historical Society) history is captured through the unique, colorful and fascinating stories and memories of former residents who lived and celebrate that history.

Walker House – 2010 Preservation Awards

Walker House
121 N. San Dimas Avenue, San Dimas

Designed by Samuel and Joseph Cather Newsom, the Queen Anne-style San Dimas Hotel was built in 1887 along the Santa Fe Railway to attract migrants from back east. The economic boom went bust, and the building never opened as a hotel. Instead, it served as home to the family of James W. Walker from 1889 through the 1970s. It operated as a restaurant for years, then fell into decline and suffered two decades of neglect and earthquake damage. The City of San Dimas stepped up, purchasing the property and rehabilitating it into a mixed-use community facility. This beautiful, significant landmark came back from the brink to serve as a vital asset and source of civic pride, while keeping the authentic patina of a century-old landmark.
