The Elysian Heights Neighborhood
Elysian Heights was developed as early as 1888, although today is usually lumped in with Echo Park. Before that it was Edendale, and before that Reservoir No 4 was re-named Echo Park Lake. It was home to the Semi Tropic Spiritualists’ campground and the population of Mexican Anarcho-Communists led to its being nicknamed “Red Hill.” Later its biggest celebrity was Room 8 the Cat, a cat whose exploits at Elysian Heights Elementary were covered by the media.
Since the 1910s, Elysian Heights, along with Edendale has been home to many of the counterculture, political radicals, artists, writers, architects and filmmakers in Los Angeles. The children of many progressives attended school there during the 1930s, '40s and '50s. Many architecturally notable and historic homes can be found on the hills of Elysian Heights, such as Southhall house, designed by Rudolph Schindler, Philip Dike house, Harwell Hamilton house, Paul Landacre house, Estelle Lawton Lindsey house, Carey McWilliams house, Klock House, Judd-Atwater bungalows & Ross House.
