  • I’ve lived in L.A. almost my whole life and never knew this house was here until reading about it in The Library Book by Susan Orlean last year! We visited on a Saturday. There is no parking lot...

  • The visit in the Lummis House - El Alissa was a fascinating tour to the past of the area and Lummis part in it. Christian who takes care of the place and curates the exhibition is a well of knowledge. When you are coming for a visit, it’s a must to have a chat with him after you walk around the property. A hidden historical jam in LA . We enjoyed our conversation with Christian and his amazing knowledge about Lummis and the area.He was making the entire visit exceptionally fascinating. Most recommended!!!
  • One of the most interesting spots in LA. If you have a passion and love for Archaeology, you must visit. There is much to appreciate with the art of the building, and the nature that surrounds it. To learn more about the builder of the house, Charles Fletcher Lummis, the Southwest Museum of the American Indian details the his work and passion of archaeology. Dennis was a great host for our experience.
